Southeastern Wildlife Exposition of Charleston, SC attracts National attention:

The 27th annual Southeastern Wildlife Exposition will again be hosted by Historic Charleston, South Carolina. Charleston was recently ranked the #2 travel destination in the United States by Conde Nast Traveler!

Attracting over 35,000 visitors, the Exposition is the largest of its kind. Gifted sculptors, wood carvers, custom knife makers, painters and other artists of the wildlife genre are showcased.

Educational outreach is another key element of the Exposition. Exhibitors like the Charleston Center for Birds of Prey and the Busch Wildlife Sanctuary host programs offering the public a rare glimpse of wild animals and the opportunity to learn about nature up close and personal. Wildlife and habitat conservation are encouraged by the public witnessing demonstrations while enjoying lectures by trained handlers. The importance of both wild and domestic animals is showcased by observing great presentations like 'Living with Wolves' and 'Retriever' demonstrations.

Historic Charleston and the surrounding barrier islands are all about the sea - and visitors to the Exposition will also be treated to demonstrations like how to 'Cast Net' and 'Fly Fish' and the whole family will learn a lot from the 'Fish Lady'. 'Dock Dogs' is a not-to-be-missed demonstration of some four-legged jumpers who can really make a big splash!

Children are welcome guests to the Southeastern Wildlife Exposition. There is a special 'Children's Square' dedicated to fun and educational activities for kids of any age. Examples of kid-friendly doings at the Expo are: Exotic Petting Zoo, Pony & Camel rides, Power Rock Climbing, Craft making and science station, Spider Jump and a special tent by the Edisto Island Serpentarium.
