April 2013. The Nature Conservancy, its partners and over 500 volunteers started to build a 224-foot living shoreline at Pelican Point along Mobile Bay, Alabama. In total, 20,500 interlocking concrete blocks will be stacked along the shore to form the foundation of four oyster reefs. The reefs will protect 329 feet of natural shoreline, helping to minimize erosion, protect coastal dunes and enhance natural habitat.
