Restoration Center Banner

Habitat restoration and conservation are essential to the future health and sustainability of our nation's coastal resources and fisheries. The NOAA Fisheries Restoration Center restores coastal and marine habitats that support the nation's fisheries and other trust resources. We provide restoration expertise and comprehensive restoration planning and implementation for coastal and marine habitats facing chronic problems like subsidence, erosion and disruption of natural processes.

The photos in this collection tell a story.... of progress and commitment. They provide snapshots of the work we do to advance the science of habitat restoration by expanding local habitat restoration techniques into broad-scale, ecosystem restoration approaches in all coastal, estuarine and anadromous fish habitats within the United States and its territories.

Several programs help us accomplish our restoration goals: the Damage Assessment and Restoration Program (DARP); the Coastal Wetlands Planning, Protection and Restoration Act (CWPPRA); the Community-Based Restoration Program (CRP) and the Restoration Research Program. The restoration work completed under these programs is making a difference, as you will see.

We hope you enjoy the Restoration Center photo collection and return to them often. For more information checkout the NOAA Restoration Center Web site at
