- OUR MISSION -
Helping Delaware communities develop sustainable coastal economies based on a thriving natural environment
Creating coastal economies based on sustainable environmental practices requires three essential components: understanding our marine resources, working with communities to effect positive change, and training the next generation of environmental stewards.
We achieve these goals by:
Funding scientific research that addresses critical issues at the intersection of Delaware's coastal economy and environment
Building active partnerships with state and federal agencies, local businesses and environmental nonprofits, and Delaware communities and private citizens
Advancing environmental literacy and initiating opportunities for students, teachers, and Delaware citizens to develop the next generation of coastal leaders
