The partnership between NFWF and NOAA was formalized by Congress in 1994. Through the partnership, NOAA and NFWF work together to support marine and coastal conservation. The partnership focuses across the marine environment, including sustainable fisheries, coral reefs, marine debris removal, sea turtles, and the restoration of living shorelines and other coastal habitats. The partnership also focuses on expanding, increasing, and strengthening natural infrastructure to protect coastal communities and wildlife.
