The Galveston Bay Foundation (GBF), a nonprofit, member-supported, conservation organization, has produced the Habitat Conservation Blueprint (HCB), which is a practical, site-specific plan to guide community efforts to restore/conserve valuable habitat in the GB system. The HCB builds on the work of the Galveston Bay Estuary Program, with its goal of creating or restoring 15,000 acres of vegetated marine, estuarine, and shoreline wetland habitat by the year 2004. It is also part of a national effort to restore 1,000,000 acres of estuarine habitat by the year 2010 as part of an alliance of regional estuary groups, Restore America's Estuaries.
