The Story

An 88-acre private beachfront development has been proposed for Cumberland Island National Seashore, the country's largest and wildest barrier island. A developer plans to build at least 10 large houses adjacent to Cumberland Island's visitor center and campground. 

Cumberland Island is a national park, wilderness area and global biosphere reserve that shelters dozens of endangered species. Five species of endangered sea turtles nest on Cumberland Island. It is also a beloved hiking and camping destination with pristine, windswept beaches and ancient old-growth forests.

Wild Cumberland—along with a coalition of other conservation organizations—hopes to stop the development with legal action. But time is running out. We need to file litigation in the next few months in order to stop the bulldozers. 

If this private upscale subdivision in the middle of a national park is allowed to proceed, an additional 1,000 acres of private land within Cumberland Island National Seashore may also be developed. 

As an all-volunteer federal 501(c)(3) nonprofit, Wild Cumberland will use 100% of the funds for direct legal action to stop the development. 

More information about the proposed development and efforts to stop it can be found at or on Facebook at Wild Cumberland. A recent feature story about the proposed development can be found here.
