A positive step for Bird Conservation

Jekyll was all about shorebirds today March 22. Ben Carswell and I along with 2 americorps folks met Gene Keferl, Janice Browning of Coastal Georgia Audubon Society (CGAS) volunteers at the south end of Jekyll. We put up Wilson’s Plover signs and roped off an area of the critical Wilson’s Plover habitat. We have seen two pairs of Wilson’s setting up territories in the area. This is a positive first step for bird conservation and Operation Plover Patrol on the island. This looking toward the ocean and the fencing.I am very excited to have The Georgia Sea Turtle Center, Coastal Georgia Audubon, The Jekyll 4-H working with Jekyll’s New Director of Conservation, Ben Carswell.
