Saving Sandy Island, Part 3 of 9 - Preservation


In part three of Saving Sandy Island the residents begin to explore what will happen to their island if development takes place and what they must do to preserve the land.

Saving Sandy Island is a documentary about the struggle to save an exceptional South Carolina island and its Gullah community from development. Home to endangered species and rare long leaf pine forests, Sandy Island is the largest undeveloped freshwater island on the east coast. The program tells the story of the unique coalition of conservationists, state agencies, businessmen and community residents that came together to save this extraordinary place and preserve a historic culture.
