Cottage Charm, Coastal Calm

Keep our coast clean and our sea creatures safe

The island is full of visitors and we welcome everyone with open arms! However there is one thing we wish everyone did a better job while here- keeping our beaches and streets free of litter. There is a wonderful organization based here in Savannah call Clean Coast

http://www.cleancoast.org/ that works hard at keeping our Georgia Sea Islands . Here are some tips and reminders for all our visitors.

  • Clear plastic bags floating in the water can be mistaken for jellyfish and eaten by turtles, fish, or dolphins
  • Fish and other marine animals and birds become entangled in fishing line, nets or six-pak rings
  • Styrofoam eventually breaks up into small pellets that are mistaken for eggs and eaten
  • This photo of a dead pelican entangled in balloon string was taken by a Clean Coast member on the Georgia Coast… .

While here, please pick up any litter and trash you see on the beach and streets and recyle in the cans we have all over the island.
