The Florida Trustee Implementation Group has approved its Final Restoration Plan 2 and Environmental Assessment. The plan includes 18 selected projects that address five natural resource restoration types:
- Habitat Projects on Federally Managed Lands
- Sea Turtles
- Marine Mammals
- Provide and Enhance Recreational Opportunities
One project addresses both the Habitat Projects on Federally Managed Lands and the Provide and Enhance Recreational Opportunities restoration types.
We released the Draft Restoration Plan 2 and Environmental Assessment on February 19, 2021 and accepted public comments through March 29, 2021. We received and considered more than 20,000 correspondences.
More details about the selected projects, and some of the adjustments we made after receiving public comment are at our latest Gulf Spill Restoration update.
