The Gulf of Maine Institute (GOMI) is dedicated to touching, moving and inspiring people to become involved in promoting and taking action to achieve healthy stewardship for the Gulf of Maine and its watershed. Founded in 1997 by a dedicated group of community-based environmental activists, educators, and scientists from Atlantic Canada and New England, and directed by Dr. John Terry, we believe that youth need to be engaged today–as involved citizens, future scientists, decision makers, and cultural transmitters–in the preservation of the Gulf of Maine and its watershed.
GOMI activities include the development and support of youth teams from around the Gulf of Maine (see Teams page), sponsorship of mini-conferences in the New England and Maritime regions, conduct of a week long Summer Workshop to bring all of the teams together, teacher training and support of research efforts.
