Conservation Partners Sign MOA for Deepwater Horizon Project Tracker
On August 19, a memorandum of agreement was signed by the Gulf of Mexico Alliance, The Trust for Public Land, Ducks Unlimited, and the U.S. Endowment for Forestry and Communities. The agreement will further develop the Alliance's restoration project map site into a more robust project information system called the Deepwater Horizon Project Tracker. The DWH Project Tracker will be a comprehensive web portal for accessing maps and key data about projects funded by all Deepwater Horizon oil spill settlements in the Gulf of Mexico.
Current and user-friendly, it will be the most complete picture of the location, type, and size of projects funded by all the settlements. Each project snapshot will include a brief description, a project contact, and a link to access detailed project information. Currently in development, an early version of the DWH Project Tracker is accessible from the Gulf Restoration page on the Gulf of Mexico Alliance's website.
