SAVE TANGIER ISLAND

Tangier Island is disappearing due to erosion from climate change and sea level rise. Residents may have to abandon Tangier in as little 25 years. (Read the report here: http://www.nature.com/articles/srep17890 ) We need to build breakwaters and a living shoreline and are trying to raise our share of the cost through fundraising and awareness. You can help us by donating or buying a t-shirt here or going to our Indiegogo Generosity Page: https://www.generosity.com/community-fundraising/save-tangier-islandand  and giving a little bigger. You can also help us by spreading the word about our efforts to save our precious island home. Thank you!!
