Sea Level Rise at Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge
Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge is located in Charleston County, South Carolina. Its main objective is to provide habitat for waterfowl, shorebirds, wading birds, and resident species. There are over 277 species of birds found on the refuge.

Cape Romain has been experiencing extreme tide events, likely due to accelerated climate change. The island is consistently being overwashed, and soon there may be little to no island left behind.
