CITGO Continues Coastal Restoration Effort

CITGO Petroleum Corporation, together with the Coastal Bend Bays & Estuaries Program (CBBEP), hosted a coastal restoration effort in the Nueces Delta Preserve last week.

It is important for businesses like ours to partner with the communities in order to solve issues that affect all of us,” said Nelson P. Martinez, CITGO president and CEO.We are eager to take the lead on projects like the restoration effort in the Nueces Delta Preserve because environmental stewardship is a value we share with the Corpus Christi community where we have operated for the last 80 years.”

The Nueces River Delta represents a unique mosaic of highly productive wetlands, open water, coastal prairie and river and bay shorelines.

With a goal of preserving and protecting this unique land, the CBBEP has turned the Nueces Delta Preserve into a hub for educational programs and various habitat creation and restoration projects.

Throughout the years, storms along the Gulf Coast have contributed to significant coastal change, reflected in the many disappearing beaches, dunes and wetlands.

The Nueces Delta Preserve Project is one of several environmentally-focused projects that CITGO has hosted as part of a yearlong campaign leading up to the 10-year anniversary of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.
