The CEC is dedicated to promoting the successes of estuary restoration and conservation, as well as addressing the challenges facing our nation's estuaries. CEC members reognize the critical importance of our nation's estuarine systems and work to protect and restore our nation's estuaries. Caucus members are committed to ensuring that the full range of benefits provided by estuaries continue to be realized including: sustaining economically important fishery resources, improving the resilience of coastal communities, protecting vital infrastructure from extreme weather events, and providing new recreational opportunities.

As threats to estuaries continue to mount, the CEC's work will be critical to ensuring these systems remain healthy and productive. 

Currently, the CEC has nearly 40 members representing districts along each of our Nation's coasts. If you'd like your Member of Congress to join the Estuary Caucus, give them a call and make the request! The CEC welcomes any Member who wants to protect and restore our estuarine systems.
