DIBS is raising funds to protect the Bald Eagle nest on Indian Street. The eagles have raised young eaglets on the island for six years. The current owner has sold the eagle lot at a fair price to DIBS to protect the nest. We have $30,000 in matching funds for the lot but more is needed.

GOAL: $29,000



The DIBS team is working with the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) and South Alabama Land Trust (SALT) to utilize funds from the Gulf Benefit Fund (GBF) grant to provide Conservation Easements on 28 properties on Dauphin Island. In addition, the grant provided funding for the purchase of 17 properties as of March 2023 with more property purchases on the horizon by the end of this year. This exciting and timely news is a positive step forward in the protection of critical bird habitat as development has expanded at an alarming rate on the island.
