DDWS raises $2.7M toward Wulfert Bayous acquisition
The “Ding” Darling Wildlife Society-Friends of the Refuge continues to move forward with its project to raise a minimum of $3 million in private donations to complete the $9.5 million acquisition of Wulfert Bayous, the last large parcel of unprotected and undeveloped land on Sanibel.
Officials recently reported that $2.7 million has been raised in gifts and pledges toward the goal.
In addition, the DDWS continues to work with Lee County Conservation 20/20 for the possibility of receiving the remaining amount to purchase and protect the 68-acre property.
