Cape May’s Inner Shoreline Restoration Completed (USA)

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service recently completed the first of 31 Hurricane Sandy coastal resilience projects focusing on rebuilding natural areas along the Atlantic Coast.

The $1.65 million beach restoration project restored five beaches on Cape May’s inner shoreline, including Kimbles Beach, Reeds Beach, Moores Beach, Cooks Beach and Pierces Point.

Along with the restoration of coastal wildlife habitat, the project provides the added benefit of enhanced storm protection for nearby residents, as well as public recreational opportunities.

This project, the first of a wave of coastal resilience projects funded by the Department of the Interior through the Disaster Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act of 2013, is a partnership of the Service with the American Littoral Society, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
