Marsh Madness

Marsh Madness bracket

Download your bracket

In North Carolina and Virginia we love basketball almost as much as we love the sounds. Since everyone seems to be an amateur bracketologist, we’re providing one more bracket to complete this March.

During Marsh Madness we’ll highlight the most iconic species of our sounds on Facebook and Twitter. Sixteen species will face off in an old-fashioned popularity contest.

The animals and plants of the Albemarle-Pamlico estuarine system have hundreds of natural stories to tell. The APNEP logo features a bald cypress, the marsh grass Spartina alterniflora, a diamondback terrapin and an osprey. Sturgeon, pelicans and other species serve as totems for our partner organizations. Finally, keystone species like oysters and blue crabs are known as much for their economic importance as for their ecological significance.

We hope you’ll find your favorite species. We hope you’ll also learn something new. As the tournament progresses we’ll discover our sounds' most beloved species.

Click here to see our Sweet Sixteen. Don't forget to vote! Then, follow us on Facebook and Twitter as the rounds progress!
