OKEFENOKEE

PROTECTION ALLIANCE

Okefenokee Protection Alliance Partners

With its unique ecosystem and incomparable beauty, the Okefenokee Swamp is a national and international treasure, and the source of the St. Marys and Suwannee Rivers. With its opportunities for boating, birding, fishing, photography, adventure, and hunting nearby attracting 650,000 visitors a year and supporting more than 700 jobs, the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge (NWR) provides more economic benefit to each of Georgia and Florida than any other NWR. These organizations are fighting long-term to Save the Swamp from anything that would damage it, including the potentially-devastating titanium strip mine proposed by Twin Pines Minerals, LLC, on the doorstep of the Okefenokee NWR.
