Port Royal Sound Foundation, a 501(C)(3) non-profit, is dedicated to the betterment and conservation of the waters and lands of our unique salt marsh ecosystem that is the Port Royal Sound Estuary system. 

Our mission is to advance the awareness of Port Royal Sound and its contributions to the environmental, cultural, and economic well-being of our area, the region, and the Atlantic Ocean.  

The Port Royal Sound Area is our area of outreach which includes the many connected tidal rivers and creeks and surrounding lands influencing our special salt marsh ecosystem. We also include nearby bodies of water that have similar characteristics.
