Coastal Georgia is an amazing place, and we need your support to keep it that way.
Georgia’s 100-mile coast is home to some of the most diverse ecosystems on the planet. With 14 major barrier islands, extensive dune systems, maritime forests, major riverine systems, and nearly one-third of all the salt marshes in the eastern United States, the habitats of Georgia’s coast support 71 high-priority animal species and 91 high-priority plant species.
Our coast provides important calving, grazing, and nesting sites for endangered right whales, shorebirds, and sea turtles. We are excited to announce that on November 1, 2017, the Western Hemispheric Shorebird Reserve Network designated Georgia’s coast as a Landscape of Hemispheric Importance.
This designation recognizes significant landowner stewardship efforts to protect, restore, and manage land that supports more than 30% of the biogeographic population of Red Knots and Piping Plovers.
One Hundred Miles will dedicate all funds raised on GA Gives Day to protect shorebird habitat by supporting our vital shorebird advocacy and education work in 2018. This work will include community education programs to inform beachgoers about how they can preserve shorebird habitat.
Thank you for your support and for ensuring the protection of Georgia’s shorebirds for generations to come.
