Abstract:
Twenty years ago, there were 14 red wolves left in the nation. Through wildlife management, this endangered animal was brought back. In 1987, red wolves were successfully released into the Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge in eastern North Carolina. Now, with the spread of coyotes across the state, interbreeding, which almost destroyed the red wolf's genetic purity once before, threatens it again.

Abstract:
There are 4,000 miles of estuarine shoreline in the state. Over the past twenty years, homesites, construction, and farming have increased along it, prompting concern about water quality, wildlife habitats, and erosion. The Division of Coastal Management is reviewing building regulations of the past decades to determine if revising them would alleviate these problems.
