Cat Island shoreline restoration reduces hurricane risks, boosts natural habitat
Bulldozers spread sand on Cat Island, Miss., Sept. 29. The island has nearly been restored to its 1990’s shoreline, reducing hurricane risks to Mississippi and boosting the natural habitat for birds and turtles. The shoreline restoration is expected to conclude in mid-October with sand fencing and dune vegetation to be installed by May of 2018.
