Coastal Bend Bays & Estuaries Program is dedicated to protecting, researching and restoring the bays and estuaries in the 12-county region of the Texas Coastal Bend. A part of the National Estuary Program, 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. The bays and estuaries of the Texas Coastal Bend are havens for human recreation, wildlife habitats and serve as an economic engine. Their continued health, beauty and bounty are essential for continued enjoyment of both people and wildlife.
