NOAA is funding this project and the Lead Principal Investigator for this project is Scott Hagen from the University of Central Florida. Grand Bay NERR is the Communications Lead for this project.

Researchers provided updates about the science begin conducted. Coastal decision-makers took part in a focus group while the rest of the participants discuss next steps of the project and how the results might be used to assist future restoration projects.
