Designated Wildlife Beach Areas

Wildlife Beach Zone Concept:

Recreational disturbance can make high-quality habitat unavailable to shorebirds who need quiet, safe places to nest, feed, and rest. One strategy to address this issue is to designate certain zones that can be used for different recreational or management goals. By educating beach users about which areas are important to wildlife like shorebirds, then they are empowered to act in ways to help protect good habitat. Working with partners across the Atlantic Coast, Georgia can demonstrate how voluntary Wildlife Beach Zones can protect habitat at public beaches for shorebirds, while enhancing the experience of beach users. Areas on Jekyll Island, St. Simons Island, Tybee Island and Fort Pulaski have been identified as potential Wildlife Beach Zones.
