Bald Eagles

Bald eagles have become a pretty common sight in the Lowcountry, but this hasn't always been the case. Over the course of his career, researcher Tom Murphy has watched this species go from near-extinction – only 13 breeding pairs in the entire state of South Carolina in 1977 – to an estimated 400+ pairs now.

Join Tony and learn more about this fantastic success story!
