Abstract:
Some of the best hunting and fishing areas on the Atlantic and Gulf Coasts are on and around undeveloped barrier islands. Yet, these areas are experiencing the fastest growth, urbanizing at twice the rate of the mainland. Unless policies are changed, costs to taxpayers for barrier island development and loss of natural habitat will be enormous.

Abstract:
An ideal conservation bill for North Carolina to introduce would be a bottle bill that requires plastic beverage containers to be returned and reused. By transitioning back to the returnable system, the state could reduce litter and save energy, resources, and tax dollars.

Abstract:
In the winter, North Carolina fishermen can find surprisingly good trout fishing on a bright, sunny day when the temperature is in the fifties and the water in the stream is at normal levels and clear. The best fishing, however, is when it begins to rain on the stream and the water becomes muddy.

Abstract:
River herring migrate into the Chowan River each spring, but pollution, foreign fishing, and unknown pressures have led to less abundant herring runs. In January, herring were abundant offshore North Carolina, but no one can predict how many will make it to the river.

Abstract:
Chemists have demonstrated that a group of compounds called phyto-estrogens, found in a number of common plant species, produce in some animals the same infertile effects that the birth control pill produces in women. This discovery raises questions regarding the rate of plant extinction and implications for both humans and wildlife.

Abstract:
A change in fur tagging regulations will allow fur dealers who buy beaver and fox pelts from fur dealers in other states to return to North Carolina and hold the pelts for up to three weeks without having to buy state fur tags for the pelts. During processing, the pelts must be separated from resident pelts unless they are clearly marked.
