Established in 1986, they have steadfastly labored for over 35 years to safeguard the irreplaceable landscapes that lend South Carolina its extraordinary charm.
From humble beginnings, rallying to shield Alge Island on the Stono River, the organization has evolved into a formidable institution, conserving over 150,000 acres of coastal land and water. Iconic places like Angel Oak Preserve, Marshview Trail, Magnolia Park, and Community Garden now stand as eternal testaments to our mission's success, open to the public and forever protected by Lowcountry Land Trust.
With both private and public land preservation at our core, they champion the health of our coastal ecosystem and proudly embrace their identity as South Carolinians.

Ocean Alliance, Inc. is a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization, is on a mission to safeguard whales and their oceanic habitat through a multi-faceted approach encompassing research, scientific collaboration, public education, and artistic initiatives.
Through their innovative "Drones for Whale Research" program, the Ocean Alliance develops non-invasive tools that gather crucial data on whales, enhancing our understanding of their ecological significance and devising effective protection measures amid the rapidly changing ocean environment. Among their groundbreaking initiatives is the "SnotBot" program, employing specially modified consumer drones to collect exhaled breath samples from whales onto petri dishes. This invaluable biological data provides key insights into the health of whales.
With drones also measuring whale size and attaching data tags, Ocean Alliance's methods prove non-intrusive, safer for the whales, cost-effective, and pose minimal risk to researchers. Their unwavering commitment to whale preservation sets an inspiring example for the world.
