Mission and Guiding Principles

Since 1993, the Alabama Coastal Foundation (ACF) has worked
to create a healthy balance between the conservation needs of our
priceless coastal resources and the inevitable pressures of economic growth. We accomplish this by bringing together stakeholders with differing interests to facilitate mutually beneficial solutions. We provide fair and factual information to encourage responsible citizen action and we offer opportunities for individuals to play a vital role in preserving the environment and our coastal way of life.


Our mission is to improve and protect the quality of Alabama's coastal resources by identifying and solving problems through education, cooperation and participation.

How We Work

We use an education-based approach to conservation: to find the solution, you must understand the problem. We pursue practical solutions to conservation challenges in a non-adversarial manner. We are dedicated to partnering with businesses, local government and other non-profits to maximize resources results.
