    Wilson's Plover Birds Call Sullivan's Island Home for Nesting

    Wilson's Plover birds call Sullivan's Island home, annually migrating and nesting along our beach.  Wilson's Plover is a threatened shorebird species, identified as endangered by the State of South Carolina.  Major threats to these birds and their nests range from coastal development to nest disturbances by humans, pets and other animals. (Click: More Information, SC DNR)

    The Town of Sullivan's Island has joined with Sullivan's Island Elementary School, Edgar Allan Poe Library of the Charleston County Public Library system and the SC Audubon Society to raise public awareness of the Wilson Plover on Sullivan's Island and help educate the public on ways to co-exist and protect the birds' habitat.
