The largest undeveloped tract of coastal Georgia salt marsh, maritime forest and logleaf pine uplands is now protected after two national conservation organizations acquired the land with the intention of transferring ownership to the state.

The Conservation Fund and Open Space Institute, or OSI, announced Friday the purchase of the 16,083-acre Ceylon tract east of Woodbine, which encompasses coastal habitat that is critical to the preservation of gopher tortoises, threatened indigo snakes and other species.

Each organization bought a portion of the property that is located along the Satilla River, according to a prepared statement.
