Coastal Bend Bays & Estuaries Program is dedicated to protecting and restoring the health and productivity of the bays and estuaries in the Texas Coastal Bend, while supporting continued economic growth and public use of the bays. We work with local governments, conservation groups, teachers, students and the public to raise awareness of our natural surroundings through research, restoration and recreation projects, and environmental education. The health, beauty, and bounty of our bays and estuaries are essential for continued enjoyment of both people and wildlife.
NEW* In 2016, the CBBEP initiated a new collaborative effort to revise the Coastal Bend Bays Plan in order to incorporate developments that have occurred since the previous plan was drafted and to ensure that new priorities are being addressed. For more information, to view the draft plan, or to get involved check out our Coastal Bend Bays Plan page.
