Raccoons, Those Sneaky Little Bandits
Show Notes

Alan Hancock of the Coastal Conservation League, Rebecca Haynes of Conservation Voters of South Carolina, and Bill Stangler, the Congaree Riverkeeper, break down the week in conservation in South Carolina.

We chat about rollbacks at the Environmental Protection Agency, talk to Raleigh West about the Conservation Bank, and to State Senator Vincent Sheheen about land protection. 

Public Concern is the weekly podcast from the South Carolina Conservation Coalition. The name of our podcast comes from Article 12 of the South Carolina Constitution, which is all about the functions of government: “The health, welfare, and safety of the lives and property of the people of this State...and the conservation of its natural resources are matters of public concern.”
