The people of Johns Island can still swim in creeks at high tide, sit on their docks and listen to snapping shrimp, catch a fish for breakfast and watch various long-legged egrets and herons as they feed along the creeks. However, our culture is at risk to development. As is the natural habitat of our beloved dolphin.   The author, Charles Seabrook,  was born on Johns Island.     The World of the Salt Marsh is highly recommended to anyone who shares the Johns Island Conservancy’s respect of the salt marsh and would like to learn about its biology and culture.
