The Institute for Regional Conservation, a Delray Beach nonprofit that aims to protect, restore and manage biodiversity regionally, and to prevent the local extinctions of rare plant, animals and ecosystems, was awarded a $10,000 Community Impact Grant from New York Life. 
The grant will support Restoring the Gold Coast phase two, which aims to recover the beauty and diversity of plants and animals native to coastal ecosystems in Palm Beach County.
In its second phase, Restoring the Gold Coast expands from a concentration on the coastal dune system to include the whole barrier island west to the mainland along the Intracoastal and adjacent waterways.
