ABOUT:

The North Inlet-Winyah Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve is one of 27 reserves around the coastal United States that form the National Estuarine Research Reserve System (NERRS). The NERRS was created in 1972, and is dedicated to conservation, research, education, and stewardship in America’s estuaries. The North Inlet-Winyah Bay (NIWB) NERR was established in 1992. Each reserve receives funding from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), with matched resources from a host state agency. The North Inlet-Winyah Bay Reserve is hosted by the University of South Carolina’s Belle W. Baruch Institute for Marine and Coastal Sciences. We are headquartered at the internationally recognized Baruch Marine Field Laboratory in Georgetown, South Carolina. South Carolina is also home to another NERR, the ACE Basin NERR in the southern coastal region, which is hosted by the Department of Natural Resources.
