About Audubon South Carolina:
Audubon South Carolina (ASC) represents an ever-expanding flock, with nearly 28,000 members and supporters in every State County, two nature conservation centers/sanctuaries, and more than 30,000 acres of land that we own and manage using bird-and climate-friendly management practices. In addition, Audubon South Carolina also works with eight chapters and bird club partners across the state. Audubon South Carolina’s varied conservation work – and our passionate supporters – give the birds we love a fighting chance while creating a better future for us all.
People, Places & Policy:
Just as ecosystems are interconnected, so, too, is our work. Our efforts weave together South Carolina’s people, places, and policy to make a lasting impact.
As champions for conservation, our nearly 28,000 members and eight state chapters and bird clubs represent an extensive grassroots network that advocates for federal, state, and local policies that protect birds and the places they need.
Audubon South Carolina’s approach to advocacy connects our members, partners, and elected officials around the issues affecting birds and people in South Carolina. Whether supporting conservation partners and frontline communities with advocacy grants, hosting in-district bird walks with legislators or providing advocacy training to chapters, ASC always works to create a unified voice for birds.
ASC is focused on accelerating a clean energy future for our state, increasing coastal resilience through natural infrastructure, and protecting South Carolina’s most valuable habitats. We have worked extensively to increase the competitiveness of solar energy in the state, secure funding for resilience and natural infrastructure projects such as the restoration of Crab Bank Seabird Sanctuary Island in Mt. Pleasant, and make resilience an important component of state planning and federal projects.
Healthy Forests: We partner with landowners on land management practices that are both bird-friendly and profitable, with a specific focus on the restoration of critical Longleaf Pine and bottomland hardwood habitats. We also own and manage nearly 30,000 acres of land.
Coastal Resilience: In 2022 we plan to release the Coastal Carolinas Initiative in collaboration with our North Carolina state office, which will serve as a strategic plan for our coastal work throughout the state, providing a meaningful mapping tool to help inform where we work and engage partners on strategic restoration and protection projects. The development stage of the initiative has already paved the way for an innovative coastal conservation strategy for the greater Cape Romain region. Over the next three years, we will spearhead several projects that will have incredible cultural and natural resource benefits for communities at increased risk from sea-level rise.
