CONSERVATION / EDUCATION
APPLYING KNOWLEDGE OF THE PAST TO RESTORE AND ENHANCE COASTAL WILDLIFE HABITATS
Opportunities abound on Jekyll Island to establish and promote eco-system values that better support wildlife.
Land management practices—like invasive plant control, prescribed fire, connecting habitat
fragments, pollinator-friendly landscaping, and creation of native grasslands and wetlands—all contribute to greater productivity and diversity of wildlife, great and small.
And, what we learn from Jekyll Island’s deep history can directly inform what type of landscapes we aim to restore.
Contributions today support land conservation management activities on the island and ensure that Jekyll Island has the necessary resources and staff training to apply cutting-edge science and
maximize the value of Jekyll Island for native wildlife.
