Restoration work in the Alabama Restoration Area focuses on restoring and conserving habitat and replenishing and protecting wildlife such as sea turtles, marine mammals, birds, and oysters. We are also providing and enhancing recreational opportunities, restoring water quality, and restoring habitats on federal lands.

Together, the Trustees are restoring natural resources—and the services they provide—that were injured by the spill. We are developing project-specific restoration plans that are consistent with the programmatic restoration plan (see chart below). As part of the restoration planning process, we accept restoration project ideas from the public. The public also has the opportunity to review and comment on any proposed project-specific restoration plans for the Alabama Restoration Area. Once a plan is approved, we will implement and monitor the selected projects.
