The signs just above the high tide line at Kiawah Island's Beachwalker County Park have a simple message for all visitors: "Please, Keep Off Dunes." Just down the beach, a long row of plastic markers address the masses with more ominous language, explaining that it's a nesting ground for two threatened species of birds, Least Terns and Wilson's Plovers. "Area Closed," the signs say. "Our coastal birds are disappearing, mainly due to disturbance from humans and dogs."
