Client: The Mobile Bay National Estuary Program

To the 1,000 residents of Dauphin Island, the sand dunes are the first line of protection from the damaging winds and waters of coastal storms. With the ever increasing threat of hurricanes and rising seas, the health of this dune system is more crucial than ever and in need of stronger regulations to preserve it.
