This project will enhance coastal bird habitat along one mile of recently restored beach that is immediately adjacent to a 200 acre bird sanctuary on Dauphin Island. The project will include sand fencing, dune plantings, signage, stewardship, and, if necessary, additional sand placement. Additionally, funding is intended to acquire and enhance important bird habitats on Dauphin Island to benefit shorebirds, wading birds and seasonal migrants.
