Big Win: What You Can Do Next!

On May 4, the voters of Sullivan’s Island came out in record-breaking numbers to voice their support for saving the maritime forest and elect a pro-conservation slate of candidates to Town Council. This is an important first step, but more urgent work remains!

Maritime Forest Serves as Habitat and Protector

A high density of trees and vegetation on the island serves to fortify its diffusive effect on the velocity of ocean waves during a storm surge. Thus the trees and shrubs of the Maritime Forest on Sullivan’s Island’s accreted land play an important role in the protection of Mount Pleasant and downtown Charleston, in addition to the protecting the middle and back side of the island itself.
