Climate change and how it's affecting South Carolina's natural resources and tourism industry will be the focus of a round-table discussion in the state capital.

The talks at the Capital City Club on Thursday include business owners, sportsmen, and natural resource regulators and will center on finding solutions to protect the state's wildlife and natural resources.

One of the speakers is Steve Moore of the South Carolina Wildlife Federation who discusses the impact of sea level rise on coastal wetlands.

Drew Lanham, a forest wildlife ecologist with Clemson University, discusses the importance and value of the state's natural resources.
