What would Yellowstone be without bison, Glacier without grizzles, the Everglades without alligators?  What would Cape Hatteras be without Loggerhead Sea Turtles and American Oystercatchers? The shore birds and sea turtle species at Cape Hatteras are part of the National Park and regional landscape.

Cape Hatteras National Seashore was authorized by Congress in 1937 as the nation’s first national seashore. The national seashore consists of more than thirty thousand acres distributed along approximately 67 miles of shoreline in North Carolina. The National Park Service (NPS) management extends from the mean low tide line on the seaward side to 150 feet into the Albemarle-Pamlico Sound.  While the National Seashore is part of a dynamic barrier island system, human engineering has changed ecological processes, eliminating habitat and altering the barrier islands shoreline and sound.

Leading scientists came together for a Science Workshop at Cape Hatteras National Seashore in September of 2016 to talk about their discoveries, and to present their research and findings to panelist working in fish and wildlife conservation, rehabilitation, ecology, climate change and conservation biology.
