U.S. Dept. of Interior Secretary Meeting with Carolinas Governors on Oil and Gas Exploration/Drilling

The top U.S. official who will make the decision whether to expand offshore drilling into the Atlantic and other areas is meeting with Carolinas' Governors this weekend. NC Governor Roy Cooper will meet with Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke on Saturday in Raleigh. During the meeting, Cooper is expected to reaffirm his request for an exemption to the expansion.

CLICK HERE to read an article from The Hill about the meetings.

CLICK HERE to read a Washington Post article about a letter sent to Zinke by a dozen state attorneys general claiming they will "oppose vigorously the Department's Program, using appropriate legal avenues" if the offshore expansion moves forward.
Deer Immunocontraception Update

The BHI Conservancy has begun the fifth year of a five-year project to control BHI's white-tailed deer population through immunocontraception. Deer management specialists have begun this year's darting and have already captured more than a dozen deer, some of whom received their second and final dose of the drug GonaCon. 

CLICK HERE to view updates from the Conservancy on this project. Contact one of the deer team members with questions at deer@bhic.org.

2018 Annual Meeting Update

It was standing room only at BHA's 2018 Annual Meeting held last Saturday at the Association Center. Property owners learned about BHA's progress toward goals during 2017 and also heard updates from other Island entities such as the Village of BHI, BHI Limited and the BHI Club, among others. 

During the meeting, BHA launched a new communication tool called BHA Mobile App, which combines information relevant to property owners in an easy-to-use and platform independent way.

CLICK HERE for instructions on how to set up BHA's mobile app on your laptop or mobile device.
