Barrier Islands are so important for protecting our coastlines and ecosystems from severe weather, like hurricanes. Beach dunes and grasses on barrier islands absorb wave energy which means small storm surge and flooding.
The Barrier Island Center is managed under Brevard County’s Environmentally Endangered Lands Program referendum. The referendum was established by voters in 1990 to protect and preserve the rich biological diversity of Brevard County for future generations.
