Stop the Warehouse Takeover!
Our coast is rapidly changing thanks to unchecked and haphazard warehouse development. Neighborhoods are being boxed in by industrial sites, creating challenges with infrastructure, local culture, historical places, and environmental and public safety.
Sound the alarm! Join communities from Chatham to Camden by asking for moratoriums on industrialization and sensible, sustainable planning. And get a #StopTheWarehouseTakeover sign for your yard!
Protect the Okefenokee Swamp: Support HB 71
Twin Pines Minerals, LLC continues their dangerous pursuit for permission to operate a heavy mineral sand mine next to the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge. The mining is proposed for the Okefenokee’s Trail Ridge, the prehistoric barrier island that helped create the swamp by holding back its waters.
The 2023 Legislative Session has concluded, but House Bill 71: Okefenokee Protection Act, which would prevent any future mining operations in the Okefenokee Swamp, remains alive. We must continue to urge our leaders (local and state) to support this bill and commit to protecting the Okefenokee.
Thank you to everyone who submitted comments to the EPD regarding Twin Pines’ draft mining land use proposal. Stay tuned to hear the EPD’s decision.
Advocate for Limits on Georgia’s Redfish!
Georgia allows the smallest redfish to be harvested in the Southeast and has the largest bag limit (5 per person and no boat limit)–nearly twice the limits of neighboring states. South Carolina and Northeast Florida have a bag limit of 2-3 per person, a vessel limit of 6-8 redfish, and larger slot size. As a result, Georgia’s redfish species are suffering, but new rules on redfish limits can help the species thrive.
Contact the GA DNR Commissioner, Mark Williams, and your State of Georgia Senator and Representative to ask that they advocate for the GA DNR Board to pass stricter bag, boat, and size limits.
