Jekyll Island is a precious little gem to me and my wife. We've been going there to relax and have fun for several years. From the very first visit, we fell in love with the sights and sounds of nature that make up this mostly undeveloped barrier island. I produced, shot and edited this story for the Initiative to Protect Jekyll Island State Park group. Here's some info about their mission:
The Initiative to Protect Jekyll Island State Park (IPJI) was founded in September of 2006 as a means of sampling public opinion on Jekyll's redevelopment and of allowing the island's many friends to work together to help preserve the park and shape its future. An all-volunteer, non-profit association with a modest beginning, IPJI has grown to over 10,000 supporters representing more than 350 towns and cities in Georgia, forty-nine states, and eleven countries. Winner of three prestigious awards over the past several years, IPJI has become a model for effective civic action.
Jekyll Island State Park ranks among America's premier public lands, and IPJI is proud to play a role in its preservation and protection. We invite all who are supportive of our mission to join IPJI -- membership is free, the benefits are everlasting.
