Tizzard Island

Tizzard Island Climate Change Resiliency Plan and Restoration Project Design

Tizzard Island is a privately owned near-shore island in southern Chincoteague Bay that provides critical habitat and serves as a buffer for the mainland against the erosive forces of increased storminess and sea level rise associated with climate change.

MCBP received a grant from Maryland Department of Natural Resources to:

  • Develop a Tizzard Island Resiliency Plan that identifies and prioritizes climate-resilient restoration options that will increase the ability of the island to adapt to changing climate conditions; and
  • Design a nature-based shoreline stabilization and wetland restoration project—based on the Tizzard Island Resiliency Plan—to address erosion, sea level rise, and storm impacts.
