The Mission

To restore and protect the water quality and natural resources of the Pensacola & Perdido Bays and watersheds through partnerships, using a community-based, scientifically-sound approach to enhance resilience. 

The Pensacola and Perdido Bays Estuary Program (PPBEP) is a coalition of local, state and federal stakeholders from Escambia (FL), Santa Rosa, Okaloosa, and Baldwin counties and the cities of Pensacola, Gulf Breeze, Milton, Orange Beach and the Town of Century.

It is a non-regulatory, place-based program designed to address watershed issues at the local level. By bringing together a diverse array of stakeholders, the PPBEP ensures meaningful and collaborative watershed management, to the benefit of all. 

The Goals

PPBEP is currently drafting a Comprehensive Conservation & Management Plan (CCMP)- a guiding document that will lay out the actions and necessary steps to reach the above goals.

CCMP development is a collaborative process-one that involves stakeholders at every level, including you! Stay involved by signing up for regular updates using the form below.
