Tybee hopes to get a $30,000 grant from the Historic Preservation Division for the survey. The city would provide $12,000 of that total, mainly through in-kind services.

The last time a survey was conducted of the properties on Tybee, about 450 were noted as historic, but that number now could be as high as 600.

Last May, the Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Historic Preservation Division announced that Tybee Island had become the 88th city in Georgia to become a certified local government. The designation makes the city eligible for federal and state preservation programs, including the state office’s historic preservation fund grant.

“The last time (a survey) was done was 2003. It’s past due,” Garbett, Tybee council member,Island-Cottage-0006 said. “Tybee dates back to the 1870s … there’s some magnificent, unique buildings, unique even to the United States. It’s part of our heritage.”

Garbett said the minimum required age for a historic designation is 50, so it’s not surprising that so many new properties might be eligible. The island underwent a great deal of development a half-century ago, and if properties built during that time haven’t been altered too heavily, they could become a part of the state and nation registers of historic places.

The survey is a requirement of the city’s new Certified Local Government designation, Morton said, but it also benefits the owners of properties that are designated historic, because they can be eligible for state and federal tax credits.

Tybee Island celebrates the birth of right whale

Tybee Island celebrates the birth of right whale

“Our North Atlantic right whale, her name is Smoke, was just spotted off our coast with a calf!” wrote Maria Procopio, director of the Tybee Island Marine Science Center. “The staff is having a huge celebration. We’ve waited three years for this!”

Since 2012, the science center has been sponsoring Smoke through the New England Aquarium, the Boston conservation agency that coordinates research about these rare whales that migrate south each winter to give birth off the coasts of Georgia and Florida. An estimated 450-500 right whales remain, making them among the most endangered of all whales.

Smoke has become the unofficial mascot for the center, with its educators toting a full-size inflatable replica of her as a 1-year-old to area schools. It’s accurate down to the unique smoke signal pattern on her head, which gave Smoke her name.

On Jan. 19, Georgia Department of Natural Resources wildlife biologist Clay George and his team, working from a boat after an aerial survey team had left the area, found Smoke and her calf 18 miles east of Cumberland Island. The calf appeared to be about a month old, George said.

The biologists took a tiny skin sample from the calf for genetic testing, and they witnessed Smoke doing something unusual.

“The only notable thing about the sighting was that at one point she surfaced and opened her mouth really wide, exposing her baleen,” George said. “She didn’t appear to be feeding. We have seen other whales open their mouths like this in the Southeast on rare occasions.”

George speculates Smoke may have been trying to cool off.

Researchers survey the whales from planes and boats through the calving season, typically December through March. They have identified seven calves so far this season; the average this century is about 20 calves per season.

“Hopefully, February will bring more,” George said.

Smoke was born in 1996. She’s the daughter of Phoenix, who earned that name when she freed herself from a life-threatening entanglement in fishing gear in 1997. Smoke made Phoenix a grandmother in 2007 when her first calf, a male, was born. She had a daughter in 2010. The sex of this season’s calf has not yet been determined.

“A right whale mother needs to have around four calves to replace themselves in the endangered population,” said Chantal Audran, marine educator and aquarium curator. “Our Smoke is a successful mother, which is hard considering the rate of mortality. She is very near to completing her job. Her grandmother, Stumpy, was called the ‘mother of right whales’ because of her reproductive success. For the children and public, I would remind them that this is the importance of our conservation efforts, which assist in allowing mothers to bravely survive entanglement and ship strikes.”

The New England Aquarium right whale team thinks of Smoke as “Tybee’s whale,” Procopio said. Now the Tybee Island Marine Science center is making plans to sponsor Smoke’s calves as well, with an eye toward Smoke and her family staying linked to its educational mission well into the future.

Right whales are called urban whales for their tendency to swim near the coast. They’re big and gentle, noted Procopio, making them a charismatic connection to the ocean for coastal residents.

“It could be that 30 years from now her whole family tree could be linked to the center,” Procopio said.

Looking for a good book to read while on Tybee?  Visit Tybee’s library.  Right on the island.

Sit back and relax on Tybee beach.

employees who take regular vacations enjoy greater productivity, increased job satisfaction and higher organizational morale than those who don’t.

If writing is more your style, encourage children you may know to enter our writing contest, co-sponsored with Leopold’s Ice Cream.  This year, the writing contest is inspired by the unique squares of Savannah.  See below for more details.

Also this month, we’re delighted to continue our partnership with Georgia Historical Society to present a conversation with Dr. Erskine Clarke, author of By the Rivers of Water: A Nineteenth -Century Atlantic Odyssey. Dr. Clarke will talk about his fascinating new book that chronicles the life of an aristocratic young couple from Savannah and South Carolina who sailed from New York and began a strange seventeen year odyssey in West Africa.

Another partnership that we are pleased to continue is to offer freetax assistance from AARP.  Volunteers from AARP will be in several of our buildings through April 15 to help fill out tax forms.  For complete details, click here.

 

Don’t forget to check out our calendars for all the other events going on this month!
