Wild Cumberland is a grassroots nonprofit organization. Wild Cumberland's website states that it is "dedicated to preserving the wilderness, native species, and ecology of Cumberland Island, and that their purpose is to help educate the public and ensure that the Cumberland Island and its natural ecosystems are protected through stewardship and by holding decision-makers accountable." [1] Wild Cumberland's main focus is the conservation of the natural ecosystem of the island, which spans across many different issues. Topics they address include the Cumberland Island horse[2], the national park service's wildfire management plans, visitor management, the number of visitors and tours on the island, the re-designation of wilderness areas on the island [3], driving on the beach, the proposed development of Spaceport Camden[4], feral hogs [5], development of the island, and the protection of sea turtles [6].
