Bear Island Wildlife Management Area, owned by the SC Department of Natural Resources, is managed to provide quality habitat for wintering waterfowl and other wetland wildlife including threatened and endangered species such as woodstorks and bald eagles; to provide habitat for upland game and nongame species; and to provide recreational opportunities for the hunting and nonhunting public. This area has also been designated as an “Important Bird Area” in South Carolina. Two observation platforms and miles of dikes provide numerous wildlife viewing opportunities.
