Ace Basin is a 350,000 acre nature preserve located in South Carolina’s lowcountry. The Ace Basin is home to not only many species of waterfowl, but also mammals, reptiles, fish, and plants. As the push for commercial development increases, nature tends to be on the losing side of that debate. A line must be drawn in order to preserve the area's natural history, and wildlife. Ace Basin is recognized as one of two Atlantic coast flagship projects of the North American Waterfowl Management Plan.
