Annual Fund for the Environment

The Annual Fund underwrites all of the conservation efforts provided to the community of BHI including the sea turtle protection program, invasive species and dune monitoring, forest and land conservation, creek water quality monitoring, freshwater aquifer monitoring, wildlife surveys, wildlife emergency response and timely research projects to address emerging issues.

We need your support to continue to fulfill the community’s vision to live in harmony with nature. Please help conserve and protect our environmental resources for all our families to continue enjoying the restorative, peaceful sanctuary that is Bald Head Island.
