Grand Bay Land Acquisition

The Grand Bay National Wildlife Refuge and Grand Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve collectively protect a diversity of important coastal habitats, including some of the last remaining wet pine savanna in the country. This project will add up to an additional 1,686 acres identified by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the State of Mississippi as critical for acquisition and long-term management to these protected lands. This acreage contains a diversity of habitats including wet pine savanna, maritime forests, tidal and non-tidal wetlands, salt marshes, salt pannes, bays and bayous.
