THE STORY:

“Marsh Matters” Our new marsh protection campaign

The Center for a Sustainable Coast is engaged in a public awareness and
advocacy campaign that's aimed at improving safeguards for Georgia’s tidal marshes. These marshes provide vital benefits - including water filtration, essential habitat for fish and wildlife, and flood protection for coastal communities.

With your help, this campaign will strengthen public support for reliable marsh protection by extending the reach of our message about the value and vulnerability of marshes.

Support will also expand our ability to track actions that threaten Georgia’s marshes and enforcement of laws that regulate them. As needed, court actions will be taken  to correct problems identified, such as weak regulation and destructive activities.

Recent problems include the construction of a 170-foot-long concrete sea-wall (bulkhead) built illegally in the buffer along tidal marsh without a permit. Instead of requiring the structure to be removed or properly redesigned and rebuilt, state regulators allowed this major violation of law to remain uncorrected. As a result, the Center filed legal action, now under court review.

More about our new program will be released in the coming months.
