CCA Georgia and Georgia DNR’s Coastal Resources Division
have identified these four important habitat initiatives for 2016
We’re about halfway to our goal of $50,ooo to fund these projects!
CCA Georgia has maintained a Habitat and Conservation reserve fund for some years and recently The Building Conservation Trust, CCA’s national habitat program, has provided a $20,000 grant to the state organization. CCA Georgia has pledged to raise an additional $30,000 to fund projects in the next 12 months. CCA Georgia is part of Coastal Conservation Association, Inc. the largest marine resource conservation organization of its kind, with more than 120,000 members nationwide. CCA is a 501(c)(3) organization that is dedicated to conservation of marine life. CCA Georgia began its work to build artificial reefs in 1991 with construction of the CCA Reef offshore from Savannah with rubble from the old Talmadge Bridge that was the U.S. Highway 17 crossing of the Savannah River. Since that time, the chapter has participated in many other habitat improvement projects and fishery management improvement projects.
