Abstract:
In a two-year study along North Carolina’s coast, the effects of sea-level rise and saltwater exposure on freshwater amphibians were investigated. Research findings show that the green tree frog has shown the ability to thrive in habitats of higher salinity than other frog species. These results are derived from the discovery of green tree frogs living and thriving in saltwater marshes of relatively high salinity.

Abstract:
A tour group led by North Carolina Sea Grant’s fisheries specialist visited Wanchese, Hatteras Island, Ocracoke, and Carteret County. The intermingling of individuals from across the country, Canada, and North Carolina revealed how commercial fishermen are fostering community and commerce in old and new fashioned ways. Discoveries included the development of Community Supported Fisheries and an app for relaying information about catches to consumers.
