Input sought on coastal, marine efforts

Special to the PRESS

Sea GrantThe Texas Sea Grant College Program is asking Texans to help it chart its course in the areas of coastal and marine research, outreach and education by participating in an online survey. As a “thank you,” five people who complete the survey will be chosen at random to win $100 gift cards.

The program that bills itself as “Science at Work for Texans” is currently developing its strategic plan for 2014-2017. Texas Sea Grant’s mission is to improve the understanding, wise use and stewardship of Texas coastal and marine resources. To achieve this mission, Texas Sea Grant develops and supports research, education and outreach programs and partnerships, and relies on the public for knowledge, advice and guidance.

The survey takes just a few minutes to complete and gauges participants’ interest in issues concerning coastal community growth and development, jobs and the economy, coastal and marine education, and coastal health, safety and beauty. Individuals interested in voicing their opinions can find a link to the survey on Texas Sea Grant’s homepage, www:// All responses are anonymous.
