The NOAA Office of Habitat Conservation’s mission is to protect, conserve, and restore habitats for a broad range of societal benefits and idealizes three primary outcomes: increased protection of habitats, increased restoration of habitats, and increased public awareness and stewardship of habitats. To attain these outcomes, the NOAA Office of Habitat Conservation relies upon ecosystem based decisions, engagement of stakeholders, encouragement of communities to become stewards of the environment, partnerships, and the use of the best available science.
Our vision is healthy and sustainable habitat that provides a range of benefits for abundant fish and wildlife, commercial and recreational opportunities, and resilient coastal communities that can withstand hurricanes, flooding, and other natural and man-made threats.
