Action Alert: Plastics are harmful to wildlife

Action Alert: Plastics are harmful to wildlife

Dr. Al Segars just retired from SC Department of Natural Resources.  He has seen up close the tremendous toll plastics have taken on marine mammals, sea turtles and fisheries.  On behalf of SCWF he wrote this letter to legislators last week as they consider tying the hands of local governments and prohibiting them from placing restrictions on plastic debris.  It is an extremely serious problem and gets worse by the day since plastics do not biodegrade.

Please contact your state senator and ask that he or she vote against the legislation that would tie the hands of cities, town and counties from doing what is best for their local citizens. 

Conservation Bank Renewal Passes Overwhelmingly 

Conservation Bank Renewal Passes Overwhelmingly 

With the passage of a Conservation Bank re-authorization bill in the SC House of Representatives, we are a big step closer to extending the life of this state agency that has been the single most important factor in the preservation and conservation of some of our most precious natural resources. We are grateful for the overwhelming vote in the House today and especially for the leadership of Rep. Brian White and others who championed the Conservation Bank.
