About the Program
Hatch Nuclear Plant, a part of Southern Nuclear Operating Company, Inc., is located in Baxley, Georgia, approximately 90 miles West of Savannah. Unfortunately, habitat loss has impacted wildlife across the country, especially in unique habitats such as Longleaf Pine forests. To help address this issue the team manages a nearly 2000 acre native longleaf forest along with numerous efforts targeting the conservation of local species.

Practices and Impacts
  • Team members monitor nesting structures for Purple Martin in an effort to support this cavity nesting species.
  • Team members have installed and monitor wood duck boxes to provide suitable nesting habitat in an effort to increase local population levels.
