Each Year, Nearly All Of The American Oystercatchers In The Country Overwinter On The South Carolina Coast
The South Carolina coast can best be described as a marine Serengeti. It is comprised of one of the largest estuaries in the nation, including the ACE Basin which boasts more than 350,000 acres of brackish water where creeks and streams flow into the estuary and transition into the Atlantic. As a result of the ebb and flow of the tidal waters in the state’s estuaries, the American Oystercatcher is known to hunker down along the coast each winter.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
