    New Jersey’s coastal community mourns the loss of Bernie Moore. Bernie served more than 40 years with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection. During that time, he served as Director of Coastal Engineering and Administrator for the Division of Engineering and Construction. Moore became New Jersey’s leading expert on shore replenishment issues and one of its most vocal advocates for restoring beaches to protect lives and property. His steadfast leadership laid the foundation for the State’s beach protection program.


    The Jersey Shore Partnership is an advocate of initiatives that are unique and important to the Jersey Shore coastal communities with an emphasis on shore protection and beach replenishment. The Partnership takes an active role in New Jersey’s economy including tourism, coastal resources, vital infrastructure, education and emergency preparedness.
