The Open Ocean Trustee Implementation Group for the Deepwater Horizon oil spill is holding a webinar on Thursday, April 27 from 12-1:30 p.m. Eastern. Participants will be able to learn about our restoration planning process, request for project ideas, and next steps for the Open Ocean Restoration Area.
The deadline for submitting project ideas is May 15, 2017. Project ideas can be submitted to our database. We are targeting restoration for wide-ranging and migratory species at important points during their life cycles and geographic ranges, including inland, coastal, and offshore areas. Open Ocean restoration types include:
- water column fish and invertebrates
- sea turtles
- marine mammals
- sturgeon, and
- mesophotic and deep benthic communities.
