Abstract:
The Wildlife and Industry Together (W.A.I.T.) program, run by the North Carolina Wildlife Federation Endowment and Education Fund, brings together state and local conservation groups and industry to accomplish two goals: create wildlife habitats on commercial and industrial lands and provide education to the public about wildlife occupying these habitats. Gestwicki discusses program mechanics, from site analysis to implementation of the plan, and looks at partners at current W.A.I.T. sites, such as Duke Power's McGuire Nuclear Station.

Abstract:
Gestwicki describes three wildlife fights that the North Carolina Wildlife Federation undertook to save threatened species and areas. These include work that led to passage by the N.C. General Assembly of the Freshwater Turtle Bill, which mandates strict protection of one of the state's most vulnerable species; creation of riparian buffers, starting in 2002, to protect wildlife in the Catawba River corridors; and opposition which led to the abandonment in 2003 of the proposed Oregon Inlet jetties.
