Extraordinary Times Call for Extraordinary Support    
- Dr. Chris Shank, Executive Director

“These are extraordinary times, extraordinary times call for extraordinary support. 
I am thinking about our staff and the incredible work they do, and the future of the Bald Head Island Conservancy."

 – Dr Chris Shank, Executive Director


The Conservancy, like all organizations, is being significantly impacted by COVID-19. For how long, and to what depth is still not clear.  Depending on the course of the pandemic, funds we obtained from the Spring and Summer seasons this year are unlikely to provide sufficient resources to continue our programs without major impacts.  
This means much of the research we perform, the Sea-Turtle Protection Program, and the other aspects of our mission on BHI are at risk of significant reductions.  

We need our community’s generous help now to establish a program for this year that will continue the highest-priority aspects of our mission.
