DIBS initiated their conservation program for neotropical migrant stopover habitat in 2000 with a grant from the Nationald Fish and Wildlife Foundation. Since that time with the continued support of NFWF and other foundations and private donors DIBS has acquired 28 individual parcels comprising some 9.5 acres of critical habitat.

There are approximately 35 undeveloped acres remaining on the island which are crucial for sustaining migratory bird habitat. These include the Tupelo Gum Swamp (11 acres), the Gorgas Swamp (6 acres), and the Steiner properly (12 acres). In addition, there are other lots scattered mostly on the eastern end that contribute significantly to the islands quality habitat. Although many of these lots suffer from lack of maintenance or four-wheeler abuse, they are still considered valuable for providing diverse shelter and food opportunities for migratory birds.

By giving a gift to the Dauphin Island Bird Sanctuaries, Inc. you can help to conserve a globally important habitat for thousands of migratory birds as well as other wildlife.
