The NOAA Restoration Center in the Office of Habitat Conservation, has been restoring habitat for almost 30 years. We’ve restored almost 150,000 acres of wetlands, rivers, coral reefs, and more. Ultimately, these projects lead to healthier, more abundant fish and wildlife, including endangered and threatened species that NOAA protects.These restored acres are a sample, representing the benefits of more than 3,000 different projects from Puerto Rico to Alaska, and Guam to Maine.
The 30 projects highlighted here exemplify just some of the Restoration Center’s work over the last three decades. Our entire portfolio is led by science, engineering, and economics experts. We work in partnership with federal, tribal, state and local governments, nonprofits, and private industry. These efforts cover a wide range of geographies, habitat, and restoration techniques, and all come with community benefits working for you.
