July is Habitat Month at NOAA Fisheries. All month long, NOAA Fisheries has been sharing incredible habitat conservation efforts through their website, Welcome to NOAA | NOAA Fisheries and social media outlets.
The theme this year is "Connecting Habitat, Climate, and Communities!” NOAA Fisheries will explain how their habitat work supports resilient communities and ecosystems and connects to climate change.
