Man Single-Handedly Trying to Rebuild Island





Steve White is desperately trying to save Holland Island, Maryland from the ravages if tidal erosion and sea level rise. This picturesque island — now broken into three sections by wave action — was at one time home to 300 islanders who braved the harsh conditions of Chesapeake Bay to catch fish, crabs and oysters. They lived a simple life. But in the early 1900’s, the islanders were forced to flee. Now, erosion has savagely attacked Holland Island. One house of 300 remains, lovingly protected and cared for by Steve White.

White had visited the island as a boy, returned later in life to buy it, and now spends most days in his solitary quest to salvage what is left of this place so rich with dwindling Chesapeake habitat and wildlife.

White is hopeful that someone will help him save Holland Island from the elements. To help finance his effort, he runs the Holland Island Preservation Foundation.
