Healthy Gulf’s purpose is to collaborate with and serve communities who love the Gulf of Mexico by providing the research, communications, and coalition-building tools needed to reverse the long pattern of over exploitation of the Gulf’s natural resources.
A healthy Gulf of Mexico returned to its former splendor that supports a thriving ecosystem that includes the Gulf’s natural resources and, just as importantly, the people, communities, and cultures that depend on those resources.
In order to accomplish its mission, Healthy Gulf must be responsive to the needs of everyone in the communities we serve, embracing differences in race, gender, ethnicity, class, ability, religion & sexual orientation. We will continue to work with communities and allies in a way that values people of all experiences, backgrounds & perspectives, and is based on respect, inclusiveness, integrity, honesty and anti-oppression. Further, we will use these values to ensure that marginalized and oppressed communities receive our attention and services when confronted with environmental issues.
