Residents and visitors alike revel in the superb natural diversity and beauty of Kiawah Island. It is a unique place where native landscapes, wildlife and people coexist for the benefit of all, a place where wonderful memories are made.

The Kiawah Conservancy is committed to understanding the critical natural habitat needed to maintain a healthy, balanced and diverse population of native plants and animals at Kiawah Island. Research, educational forums, community outreach, land preservation and habitat enhancement programs are all ways the Kiawah Conservancy protects and enhances the habitat of Kiawah Island. This is our Legacy for Kiawah Island and we invite you to be part of it. It is critical that everyone who treasures and loves this place commit to preserving it for future generations.
