Restoration work in the Alabama Restoration Area will focus on restoring and conserving habitat and replenishing and protecting wildlife such as sea turtles, marine mammals, birds, and oysters. We will also provide and enhance recreational opportunities, restore water quality, and restore habitats on federal lands.

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