Are there any programs trying to help reverse the damages that dead zones cause?

    The Gulf Restoration Network is trying to prevent further damage. They advocate changing farm subsidy programs that have indirectly contributed to the creation of the Dead Zone. They monitor the contents of the Mississippi River for nitrogen runoff and other chemicals that come from industrial farming. The federally and state funded Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Task Force is also working on this in conjunction with cleaning up from the B.P. oil spill. It will
    be working with the Hypoxia Task Force, which is made up of 5 federal agencies, 12 state agencies, and tribes around the Mississippi River. The Hypoxia Task Force was originally created by the government in 1997 to work on reversing/restoring the Gulf Dead Zone.
