Description

Hunters have been a force for conservation in South Carolina's ACE Basin, one of the largest undeveloped estuaries on the east coast of the United States. Hunting groups collaborate with state agencies and private landowners to monitor and maintain the basin's natural character, while hunting permits and licenses help fund local conservation projects.
