North Carolina’s Diverse Lands, Waters, and Wildlife
North Carolina stretches from the Outer Banks where sea turtles and royal terns nest, back across 1.8 million acres of the Albemarle-Pamlico estuary. The black water streams and pocosins of the coastal plain blend into the rolling hills of the piedmont where red cockaded woodpeckers live in remnants of what was once a vast longleaf pine forest. Then come the mountains where elevations may exceed 6,000 feet and plants and animals from colder climates are common.
This spectacular wildlife heritage is one reason why more than 8 million people make North Carolina their home. As North Carolina grows, the North Carolina Wildlife Action Plan can help us fulfill our responsibility to conserve wildlife and the places they live for future generations.
A Powerful Coalition to Conserve our Wildlife Heritage
More than 150 organizations and businesses from across North Carolina have come together to spread the word about the North Carolina Wildlife Action Plan and to secure the funding it needs for success. YOU CAN HELP by joining the coalition, engaging organizations in your community and urging our elected officials to support the federal State Wildlife Grants Program and legislation providing long-term, dedicated funding for wildlife conservation and related education and recreation.
