Bobcats are one of the most unique species on Kiawah Island and catching a glimpse of one is on the bucket list of almost every Kiawah resident and visitor alike. Unfortunately, in recent years, the use of second-generation anticoagulant (SGA) rodenticides has caused an increase in bobcat deaths. Biologist estimate we now have less than 10 bobcats remaining on Kiawah Island.
What are we doing to help save our bobcats? The Town of Kiawah Isalnd and the Kiawah Conservancy have requested a temporary, one-year prohibition on SGA use on Kiawah Island. This request is currently being evaluated and decision is anticipated sometime between August 6-10, 2020.
How can you help in this effort? We need your help now to ensure this prohibition request is approved. Click learn more below to see how you can help support this effort. We also need all Kiawah property owners to take the pledge to stop using SGAs on their property and become a Bobcat Guardian today.
