WELCOME TO THE
SOUTHERN SALT FOUNDATION
At Southern Salt, we believe in a pure methodology to conservation. That by engaging in open exploration and collaboration, we can accelerate our research and establish cutting edge techniques in conservation, awareness and implementation.
Furthermore, we believe that by educating the communities nearest to the Gulf, we will create a movement to promote and preserve the diverse landscape and cultures of our region.
Southern Salt Foundation's dedication and determination to protect and preserve the Gulf, it’s shorelines and wildlife. This desire is what drives our institution at it's core. It is the essence of our salty soul. Learn more about our work...
Our mission is to encourage a holistic approach to conservation along the Gulf of Mexico's waterways, bays, wetlands, habitats and wildlife.
We believe in creating a culture built from a strong foundation of exploration, research and collaboration with similar minded organizations.
In doing such, we will be better prepared to assist the communities along the Gulf Coast in creating sustainable systems to conserve our natural resources and fertile estuaries.
We envision a community mobilized by a desire to protect the Gulf Coast while sharing our core values of collaboration, research, education and conservation.
While our foundation may be in the emerging stages, our founders, Bryan and Jennifer Caswell, are salt of the earth. Having lived, worked and worshiped the coast and it’s serenity their entire lives, they posses a desire to protect its vulnerable shorelines and bountiful resources. For the Caswells, the Gulf is home.
