Gulf in Need
The Gulf of Maine is one of the richest bioregions on Earth. It provides food, water, economic stability, recreation and spiritual renewal for it's watershed, which encompasses much of Massachusetts and New Hampshire, all of Maine, and large portions of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. Due to climate change, however, the Gulf of Maine is warming faster than any other comparable bioregion on Earth. Such drastic change impairs its ability to provide ecosystem services and maintain biodiversity, ultimately impacting the wellbeing of all of the watershed.
As a community, our health depends on the health of our surrounding ecosystem. It is high time we come together and work to restore and maintain the Gulf.
GOMI’s mission is to educate the larger community and prepare the coming generations to steward wisely. GOMI works closely with teachers, school districts, researchers and youth to:
• Teach the importance of sustaining bio-diversity
• Prepare students to lead as citizen stewards
• Engage the scientific community to partner with us by providing youth and teachers research opportunities and resources
• Create public forums to engage communities in conversations that open windows to awareness and doors to action
