EVENT DATE: Jan 01, 2013

HOURS PLEDGED: 100

THE STORY:

COASTAL SENTINELS

In this important new program, a team of volunteers will serve as our "eyes and ears" focused on the major barrier islands along Georgia's Atlantic coast. They will report observations and suggestions about threats, opportunities, conditions, and trends to assist in improving the conservation of these vulnerable, ecologically diverse, and unique islands to help keep them healthy and beautiful. These islands feature some of the last vestiges of natural coastal areas in the U.S. Southeast.

We need funds to launch and operate the program for the first year. These efforts will include implementing methods for communicating among the Sentinels and the Center, monitoring and tracking environmental conditions, and reaching effective, timely decisions that respond to well-documented concerns raised by the Sentinels.

Resources at risk include millions of acres of highly productive inter-tidal estuaries and marsh, threatened and endangered species such as the painted bunting, piping plover, wood stork, and a variety of sea turtles that nest on island beaches. Surrounding waters, designated as "essential fish habitat" by the National Marine Fisheries Service, are exposed to harmful pollution, made worse by recurring drought and fragmented, unaccountable development policies.
