The Alabama Gulf Coast Reef and Restoration Foundation is managed by the Coastal Alabama Business Chamber and led by a volunteer board of directors. We’re proud to be working with local businessman David Walter of Walter Marine/The Reefmaker on our first project, the sinking of the Yokamu. Many thanks to the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Marine Resources Division for its continued support and management of our artificial reef program.
