Tybee Fishing Company was started by a group of local fisherman, Team Tybee, who have two passions. A passion to Fish and a passion to conserve the marine population for generations of fisherman to come. Join our movement in supporting local conservation efforts
Our mission is to cultivate a responsible stewardship
of coastal Georgia’s natural resources through
education, conservation, and research.

The Georgia Conservancy works to protect and conserve Georgia’s natural resources through advocacy, engagement and collaboration. This is our Georgia.
Georgia's coast stretches for nearly 100 miles and features some of the nation's most pristine beaches, remote salt marshes and protected maritime forests.
Protecting our coast has been a priority of the Georgia Conservancy for more than 40 years. We maintain an office in historic downtown Savannah, headed by Coastal Director Charles McMillan, and are working on a range of projects to protect this precious natural resource.
If you have any questions about our Coastal Program or would like to learn more, please contact Georgia Conservancy Coastal Director Charles McMillan at email@example.com or at (912) 447-5910.
THE DOLPHIN PROJECT was organized in 1989 after a mass die-off of dolphins on the Eastern seaboard of the United States. Scientists and volunteers came together to count the dolphins and photograph their dorsal fins (comparable to a human fingerprint for identification). These actions help monitor the health of the dolphins which are the sentinel species of their estuarine environment.
Despite the impression of a largely rural landscape, this region of Georgia is experiencing increased pressures– of agribusiness, population growth, water withdrawals and wastewater discharges – which are forcing the rivers to undergo drastic changes in water quality and face serious ecological decline. Ogeechee Riverkeeper was founded to reverse these trends and improve the river basin’s condition. Since 2005, we have amplified the voices of concerned citizens and strengthened their efforts to protect their rivers and communities. By raising awareness and aggressively responding to critical issues, we are the advocate for the Ogeechee River basin and its people.People have cherished the Ogeechee River’s pristine quality for thousands of years. Its slow-moving black water provides wonderful opportunities for fishing, swimming and canoeing, while also supporting a diverse network of plants and animals. Intimate swamps and bottomland hardwoods diverge into vibrant coastal marshes where the Ogeechee meets the Atlantic Ocean, just south of Savannah. The 5,500 square mile Ogeechee River basin makes southeast Georgia an ecological treasure for residents and visitors alike.
The mission of Gray's Reef National Marine Sanctuary is to identify, protect, conserve, and enhance the natural and cultural resources, values and qualities of the sanctuary for current and future generations.
Gray's Reef was designated as a sanctuary on January 16, 1981, and is the only protected natural reef area on the continental shelf off the Georgia coast. The 22 square miles of Gray's Reef protects an area that is recognized nationally and internationally.
The Ogeechee River Project is geared towards investigating ecological processes in this important watershed. The work of our research is meant to provide more than short-term monitoring of biogeochemical components in this river basin, but also to ensure a long-term holistic approach for research conducted on the Ogeechee River. The Ogeechee River Project consists of two research themes carried out by two distinct teams of researchers at Georgia Southern University and partner entities. One group from the Department of Geology & Geography at Georgia Southern is focused on atmospheric and terrestrial processes in the watershed while the other, from the Department of Biology at Georgia Southern in conjunction with the Southeastern Natural Sciences Academy (SNSA) is focused on the in-stream processes and biological communities of the Ogeechee River.
This Supplemental Environmental Project was undertaken in connection with the settlement of an enforcement action taken by the Georgia Environmental Protection Division for violations for the Georgia Water Quality Control Act.
