Coastal Institute

The Coastal Institute (CI) works to increase understanding of the relationships between human activity and the condition of the coastal environment and its resources. The CI works in partnership with local, state, federal, and international agencies to use this understanding to contribute to the solution of the complex problems of human use and development in coastal environments. Working across and beyond traditional structures to encourage new approaches to problem solving, the CI is a neutral setting where knowledge is advanced, issues discussed, information synthesized, and solutions developed for the sustainable use and management of coastal ecosystems.CIFellowsBirdwatching
