Research and Partnerships
The Conservancy is a small organization located on a “remote” barrier Island. Our external collaborations with elite organizations and institutions make it possible for the Conservancy to deliver on its mission of "Fostering Community Based Barrier Island Conservation, Education, and Preservation.
We currently have a variety of different collaborations with North Carolina State University, University of North Carolina Schools and other institutions. One result of our partnership with NC State is our Weather Station, located on the BHI Conservancy Campus, and operated by the State Climate Office of North Carolina. It provides real-time weather on BHI and can be viewed here.
We are always seeking new partners to improve our barrier island conservation and educational efforts. If you would like to explore the various opportunities for research and partnerships with the Conservancy, please contact Poul Lindegaard at 910-338-1706 or /research-and-partnerships .
