Notice of Initiation of Restoration Planning in Mississippi
The Mississippi Trustee Implementation Group has initiated drafting of its third restoration plan.
We began this restoration planning effort in October 2020, by requesting project ideas from the public that could benefit natural resources within the following Restoration Types:
- Marine mammals
- Habitat projects on federally managed lands
- Recreational opportunities
- Sea turtles
The Draft Restoration Plan 3 may include proposed projects for some or all of the restoration types listed above and may propose activities necessary to fill essential data gaps for restoration of resources in the Mississippi Restoration Area. We will develop a Draft Restoration Plan 3 and make it available for public review and comment.
After the comment period ends for Draft Restoration Plan 3, the Trustee Implementation Group will then review, consider, and incorporate public comments before completing any final restoration plan.
