Abstract:
The national refuge system began in 1903, when President Theodore Roosevelt set aside a tiny Florida island as a sanctuary for nesting pelicans. Because North Carolina is an important waterfowl migration and wintering area, the state has seven national wildlife refuges. Findlay gives a summary of each of the following refuges: Mattamuskeet, Swan Quarter, Pea Island, MacKay Island, Pungo, Cedar Island, and Pee Dee.

Abstract:
The state is a natural haven for birds. For centuries huge flocks from the north have come down the eastern flyways to winter on the Outer Banks, sounds, and marshes. Starting in 1938, the federal government began establishing a number sanctuaries for birds and other wildlife. The first three were Pea Island, Mattamuskeet, and Swan Quarter. In the 1960s, three more were added--Pee Dee, Pungo, and Cedar Island. Green describes each refuge. Part of Mackay Island is also a refuge, and it is administered from Virginia's Back Bay Refuge.
