The U.S. Congress formalized the partnership between NOAA and NFWF in 1994. Through this partnership, NOAA and NFWF work together to support marine and coastal conservation. Specific focal areas include coral reefs, marine debris removal, sustainable fisheries and improving the protection and resilience of coastal communities through natural infrastructure. NFWF also assists NOAA with the implementation of marine and coastal remediation, ensuring restoration is accomplished in a meaningful and timely manner.
