More than a hundred people are following our BLOG, which is our main vehicle to communicate
There are 60 people following us on Facebook

We’ve conducted a survey of our members and received 68 responses. We are using this information to plan future events (view the results here)
By now you may have noticed we have finalized our new logo. We hope you love it as much as we do! Thanks to all of you who sent us suggestions!
We hope to see you at one of our upcoming events – be sure to check our website for details and to sign-up for the bird walks!

Wednesday, June 22: SIB quarterly program on the importance of our beaches to nesting & migratory shorebirds featuring speakers from DNR & US Fish & Wildlife
Finally, we are now working with the Town of Seabrook Island and SIPOA to develop an education and communication program to inform our residents, renters and guests about the importance of protecting the migrating and nesting shorebirds on our beaches. Next time you visit North Beach, be sure to notice the new signage (see photo below) that has been placed by SC Department of Natural Resources (DNR) to protect the area currently being used for nesting by the Least Terns and the Wilson’s Plovers. This is the first time we are aware that these SC threatened birds have used Seabrook Island as their nesting areas and we need to ensure their safety so they will continue to call our beach home. We need your HELP! If you are interested to join us in this effort, please let us know!
