about Cacky Rivers

Cacky Rivers was born and raised in Charleston, South Carolina, and considers herself a true Lowcountry “salty” girl. Her father greatly impacted her love of wildlife, nature, and birds. One of the greatest gifts he gave her when she graduated college was a Peterson’s bird book and a pair of binoculars. On the inscription, it said, “slow down and enjoy!”

Recently, Cacky took up wildlife photography and has yet to look back. Not only is this a true passion for her, but she also enjoys learning and sharing her knowledge of birds with others. It brings her so much joy knowing she can be an advocate for our fine feathered friends.
