SI for All

Help Us Stop the Chop!

What is SI For All?

Our mission is to protect our maritime forest from a plan to destroy it. YOU are the key to saving this natural wonder. Please join our cause today and help us prevent its destruction.

What is the Maritime Forest?

Sulllivan’s Island’s beach is growing (accreting) and that’s made it possible for a beautiful, protective, maritime forest to flourish.

Why We Must Stop the Chop!

Climate change is accelerating. The Maritime Forest provides hurricane storm surge protection and resilience.

Three Things You Can Do to Stop the Chop!

The deforestation of Sullivan’s Island is much larger than just an “island” issue. This land was put into a public trust for the benefit and enjoyment of ALL of us — and decisions on how our maritime forest is managed, should not be left in the hand of a few private homeowners who are fortunate enough to live on the first row. Please Help us Stop the Chop!

Make Your Voice Heard

Together we can let our elected officials and permitting agencies know that destroying the maritime forest isn’t good for anyone. Putting ocean views above nature, wildlife, hurricane storm surge protection and community resilience cannot be allowed, and your voice can make a big difference.
