SIES ELEMENTARY STUDENTS PROTECT BEACH WILDLIFE

Sullivan's Island Elementary School's 2019 community conservation outreach project culminated with the posting of student-inspired beach signs aimed at helping to protect the Island habitat of the threatened Wilson Plover shorebird (identified as an endangered species by the State of South Carolina)

Watch for these eye-catching signs along the high tide line and beach access Stations 13 and 16

      

Many thanks to the sign installers!

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.
