Description

Join Friends of Coastal South Carolina, renowned author, and conservationist Carl Safina and special guest retired South Carolina Department of Natural Resources biologist Sally Murphy, for a Lowcountry Evening for Wildlife. An event benefiting the education programs and conservation work of Friends of Coastal South Carolina.

A quintessential Lowcountry evening of locally sourced cuisine and cocktails, Carl Safina talk and book signing and a spectacular curated silent auction.

Carl Safina has published seven books including; Voyage of the Turtle, Song for the Blue Ocean and Eye of the Albatross. He hosted the 10-part PBS series Saving the Ocean with Carl Safina. His writing appears in The New York Times, Audubon, Orion, and other periodicals and on the Web at National Geographic News and Views, Huffington Post, and CNN.com.

Carl’s work has been recognized with MacArthur, Pew, and Guggenheim Fellowships, and his writing has won Orion, Lannan, and National Academies literary awards and the John Burroughs, James Beard, and George Rabb medals. He has a Ph.D. in ecology from Rutgers University. Safina is the inaugural holder of the endowed chair for nature and humanity at Stony Brook University, and is founding president of the not-for-profit organization, The Safina Center.

He lives on Long Island, New York with his wife Patricia, the two best beach-running dogs in the world, a new puppy, some chickens, a parrot, and Frankie the kingsnake.

Sally R. Murphy, a Georgia native, began her career with the South Carolina Department of Natural resources as their first Environmental Education Specialist. A transfer to Charleston began her career as the sea turtle coordinator for the state. By land, sea, and air, she created the program that exists today, including the volunteer nest protection projects, and the sea turtle and marine mammal stranding networks. As co-leader of the first U.S. Recovery Team and member of WIDCAST, she traveled widely to gain knowledge of other cultures. She was involved with other endangered species conservation efforts and worked with eagles and alligators. Sally's recently released book, Turning the Tide chronicles the creation of South Carolina’s sea turtle program and the decades-long battle for the use of turtle excluder devices (TEDs) to protect sea turtles.
