We are excited to kick off Habitat Monthat NOAA Fisheries. All month long, we will share our incredible habitat conservation efforts through our website and social media. The theme this year is, “Reconnecting with Habitat!” It encompasses our desire to reconnect with partners, highlights the importance of habitat connectivity to our work, and includes community benefits from access to nature.
During this year’s Habitat Month, we will highlight a variety of different habitat conservation projects and products, announce funding for new projects from three grant competitions, and profile some of our staff and their different roles working on habitat. Follow us here and through Twitter on @NOAAHabitat and with the hashtag #HabitatMonth. Help spread the word about habitat conservation!
