The GEMS (Gulf Ecological Management Site) is part of a program developed in coordination with the EPA and the Gulf of Mexico Program. The program was established to acquire information about coastal wetland sites and make them accessible to the public through the Internet. These same sites are also Mississippi's Coastal Preserves.
