What does the Gulf of Mexico mean to you?
For those of us that live along her sandy shores, it means a sense of place - it is a bit of who we are, it's hard to move away. For others, it may be a fond childhood memory of family vacations; or still others, it's an extraordinary place to conduct business.
For 2020, the Gulf of Mexico Alliance is taking a bold step. We are proudly embarking on a year-long awareness campaign to embrace our shared, fantastic resource - the Gulf of Mexico. The goal of the campaign is to promote the Gulf's vitality, sustainability, beauty, and productivity.
Our campaign puts a focus on the basics: resilient coastal communities, prosperous industries, superior educational opportunities, thriving tourism, and healthy ecosystems. You can support the Gulf of Mexico by insisting on Gulf seafood, supporting local nature-based activities, and finding substitutes for single-use plastics, among other things.
Join our campaign. Let us know what you are doing to "Embrace the Gulf 2020" by engaging with us in social media.
The time is now. We hope you join us.
