Here’s a little-known fact. When birds are disturbed on the beach, it can threaten their lives. In fact, disturbance is one reason that species like the Least Terns, Wilson's Plovers, and Black Skimmers are in trouble. Our solution is Shorebird Stewards, a program that engages a growing group of volunteers to protect coastal birds. In 2016, seven volunteers patrolled high-traffic beaches to educate visitors about how to share the beach with birds. We began with Folly Beach, Harbor Island, and Dewees Island — places where birds were on a collision course with weekend crowds. Now in 2020, we have trained over 300 stewards and actively engage beachgoers at 8 sites along South Carolina's coast. Please volunteer! Just get trained, then coordinate your Stewardship time with others. You’ll find that it’s a blast to get outdoors and meet other nature lovers while educating beachgoers about the wonders of coastal birds and how to share the beach with them.
