Saving Sea Turtles with the Alabama Coastal Foundation

Established in 1990, the Alabama Coastal Foundation expanded its scope in 2012, becoming its first statewide nonprofit. Alabama’s coastal ecology is at risk because of a lack of cooperation and education. 

The Alabama Coastal Foundation (ACF) was able to strike a good balance. Between conserving valuable coastal resources and meeting the demands of the rapidly expanding economy. 

Individuals may play an important part in conserving the environment. Our coastal lifestyle is also to benefit if we seize the opportunities they provide.

The ACF aims to build bridges between government, business, industry, nonprofits, and the general public. Their cooperation in solving coastal conservation challenges is possible because of this cooperation.

Alabama Coastal Foundation led the Alabama Oyster Shell Recycling and the Share the Beach Sea Turtle Conservation initiatives. They also educate the public and give our volunteers engaging activities to do in their spare time.

Alabama Coastal Foundation

It’s an excellent way for the Alabama Coastal Foundation members to get involved in the community and get a taste of the seaside. 

To conserve, they take an educational approach: before discovering a solution, you have to know what the problem is. ACF hopes to educate and motivate the next generation of leaders via their work with students and the communities they serve. 

Alabama’s natural resources will be better in the long run if the public is aware of their importance.

The new “Share the Beach” license plates and legislation to designate Alabama’s Underwater Forest as a National Marine Sanctuary are two of the most important events occurring at ACF right now.

To keep abreast of what’s going on at ACF, you can subscribe to their newsletter. They don’t share or sell any of your personal information in any way.
