1. Heroic Efforts, Extraordinary People and Truckloads of Sand


    from Greener New Jersey Productions / Added

    On March 18, the first truckloads of sand were dumped onto Kimball's Beach in Cape May County as part of an ambitious project to rebuild some the Delaware Bay beaches in New Jersey damaged by Super Storm Sandy. In this short video, wildlife biologist Larry Niles shows the damage to the beach and explains how it will be replenished. Horseshoe crabs use the beaches to spawn and lay their eggs. The eggs provide a food source for thousands of migrating shore birds such as the Red Knot on their way to the Arctic. Both the horseshoe crab and Red Knot populations have suffered a significant decline in recent years. The Funders This project is funded by major grants from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation and the NJ Recovery Fund (a consortium of private foundations administered by the Community Foundation of NJ), as well as additional funding from the NJ Natural Lands Trust and the NJ Corporate Wetlands Partnership. The Project In addition to removing rubble and restoring the beaches, the project includes hiring of seasonal docents to help manage traffic and provide educational outreach to visitors to these beaches; the creation of an artificial oyster reef to help protect the restored beaches and create jobs for local bay men; a documentary of the project; and an innovative outreach program to encourage understanding of the economic value of preserving these species. The Organizations The organizations behind the work: American Littoral Society; the Conserve Wildlife Foundation; the New Jersey Natural Lands Trust; the NJ Division of Fish & Wildlife; the NJ Endangered and Non-Game Species Program; the US Fish & Wildlife Service; Middle Township; Richard Stockton College; the NJ Audubon Society; Greener New Jersey Productions; Delaware Riverkeeper Network; and the Manomet Center for Conservation Sciences.

        Tom Kearns and his family suffered extensive damage to their home because of Superstorm Sandy. Federal Emergency Management Agency funds helped them rebuild their damaged foundation. A Small Business Administration disaster loan is helping to rebuild the bungalow out back, where his daughter's family will live. At the moment, Tom and his wife share their two-bedroom house with their daughter, son-in-law, grand daughter, and three dogs. "I appreciate the help that they've given already, but when I actually look and put all the numbers together, we're still going to come up short," he said. "All help is greatly appreciated."

                    I recently had the pleasure of following a group of New Orleans Firefighters as they traveled to NYC to help out with Hurricane Sandy recovery efforts. The trip served as payback for the aid FDNY provided after Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans. Many of the NOFD members on the trip lost their homes in Katrina, and some lost their homes again in Hurricane Issac. Commissioned by Southwest Airlines, who flew the firefighters to New York without charge. Blog post: http://tinyurl.com/cz87q8e
