Part of the esteemed Carolina Stories Series presented by SCETV, "Saving Sandy Island" offers a poignant portrayal of the battle to safeguard this unique locale from the threat of urbanization. 

Sandy Island, with its endangered species and pristine longleaf pine forests, serves as a symbol of the ecological richness and cultural heritage of the Lowcountry.

Through captivating storytelling, the documentary explores the inspiring collaboration among conservationists, government bodies, entrepreneurs, and local residents who came together to protect Sandy Island and uphold its legacy for future generations. 

From the initial challenges to the eventual triumphs, "Saving Sandy Island" is a testament to the power of collective action and the enduring spirit of preservation.
