Welcome to the Gulf of Mexico Program web site. We are dedicated to finding and applying environmental solutions that work in concert with sound economic development. Our many partners from Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas work hard to protect the 1.8 million square miles that make up the beautiful waters of the Gulf. If you've ever visited one of our breath-taking beaches, eaten the delicious shrimp and oysters produced by Gulf waters and wetlands, or if you are one of the industries dependent on the annual multi-billion dollar Gulf bounty, I think you'll agree it's a resource well worth protecting. I invite you to take a few minutes and sift through the sands of the Gulf of Mexico hourglass. You'll begin to see that it's time that we act as one Community to protect our one Gulf of Mexico.
