Shane Ziegler is the Owner, Captain, and Naturalist Guide at Barrier Island Eco Tours. Shane is originally from Atlanta and spent his summers vacationing with his family on the Isle of Palms. It was here that his deep interest in marine biology was sparked, while pulling seine nets, crabbing, and fishing with his family. He later moved to the Isle of Palms and he spent his free time exploring the salt marsh, fishing, crabbing, shrimping, and roasting oysters. It was during a summer internship while attending Clemson University that Shane realized the naturalist position was exactly what he wanted to pursue. After graduating from University, Shane worked for a few years as a naturalist before starting Barrier Island Eco Tours in 1997.
