Alabama NewsCenter — Volunteers work together to salvage oyster reefs, support Mobile Bay’s marine ecosystem1 min read
By: Allanah Taylor
Local conservation organizations, volunteers and partners from around Mobile gathered March 8 at the southernmost point of Bayou La Batre to help nurture an important component of the Gulf Coast marine ecosystem: oyster reefs.
The project focused on helping salvage and repurpose an older artificial oyster reef in Mobile Bay, constructed by the nonprofit Alabama chapter of the Nature Conservancy, ahead of a larger-scale restoration project slated for fall along the Dauphin Island Causeway.
What was expected to take two days was completed in just half a day, thanks to dedicated teamwork and volunteers from local companies, including Alabama Power, nonprofit organizations, as well as University of South Alabama undergraduate and graduate students.
