Coastal Bird Conservation Program
In 2017, interest in the diminishing Crab Bank, a dedicated Heritage Trust Property and a Seabird Sanctuary managed and owned by the S.C. Department of Natural Resources (SCDNR), brought together various conservation-minded organizations to form the Coastal Bird Conservation Program. This program established a means for SCDNR and supporting organizations to collect donations to support the renourishment of Crab Bank and future coastal bird conservation efforts.
To identify how funds collected for the project were to be used, four overarching goals were determined:
We Must Act Now
