HabNET Coalition

HabNet Coalition


The Habitat Network (HabNet) Coalition is a national alliance of conservation organizations dedicated to protecting and restoring coastal habitats across the country.

HabNet was established to:

  • Create resilient coastal communities
  • Provide a forum to share expertise and resources
  • Support collaborative habitat conservation along the coasts and
    coastal watersheds
  • Further the mission of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Coastal Program
