A group of Hancock County volunteers partnering with Audubon Mississippi is working to get protection for the new Hancock County Least Terns colony. The 2016 nesting site didn't make it.
A new website, www.LeastTerns.com - hopes to consolidate community support for a happier ending this year.

Volunteers needed to protect Hancock County's first Least Tern colony: it's easy, family-friendly and fun!
South Mississippi Electric (SME) celebrated the first solar power generation facilities on the Mississippi Gulf Coast in March with ribbon cutting events at Coast Electric Power Association in Kiln and Singing River Electric Power Association in Lucedale.
The smaller-scale installations of 100 kW or less are the first two of five such facilities SME plans to construct and operate. SME is a generation and transmission cooperative providing electricity to 11 distribution cooperative members, which include Coast and Singing River Electric Power associations. All cooperatives are owned by their members.
