Relationship – The relationship between RCTB and Mordecai Island Land Trust (MLT) is based on working together to use shellfish as part of the Mordecai Island reclamation and sustainability project.
RCTB has a common interest in the activities to make Mordecai Island sustainable because it will be good for the condition of the estuary. It also can be done is such a way that shellfish can be part of the solution and that will add to the sustainability of the shellfish population. This will engage the public in a project to make the land sustainable, for people and for the creatures in, on and around Mordecai Island. Specifically, RCTB can participate in the awareness and education and provide shellfish and the experience and knowledge and resources to support various stabilization projects.
RCTB has teamed up with the Mordecai Land Trust to help stabilize and prevent further erosion to the island off of Beach Haven by installing a living shoreline to protect the island.
