In 2016, Friends of the Savannah Coastal Wildlife Refuges was awarded a grant from the Community Foundation of the Lowcountry to provide assistance to mobility restricted guests to Pinckney Island National Wildlife Refuge.
Using those funds, we were able to purchase a 15-seat electric shuttle and have operated accessibility tours on Pinckney Island ever since.
Waterfowl, shorebirds, wading birds, raptors and neo-tropical migrants with large concentrations of white ibis, herons and egrets.
Wildlife commonly observed on Pinckney Island include white-tailed deer, American alligators, bobcats, raccoons, opossums and river otters.
Freshwater ponds, salt marshes, brushland, forestland and fallow fields. A wide variety of land types support a diversity of bird and plant life on Pinckney Island.
