"In Georgia, we have a hidden treasure - 100 miles long - the Georgia coast. Our coast has nearly one-third of the Eastern Seaboard's remaining salt marsh, more than any other state. It includes the calving waters of right whales, summer grazing for manatees and nesting beaches for sea turtles and shorebirds. Our coast is rich in the history of our people, from the Creek and Oconee Native American tribes, to the first English settlement in Savannah, to the African-rooted Gullah Geechee culture and the birth of the New South."
