Abstract:
Stretching from the mountains to the coast, the state contains a diversity of wildlife and habitat. This includes the American alligator, the Southern flying squirrel, and elk herds. Brotak states that analyzing the climate of a particular region requires a close look at temperature and precipitation. \"These two elements to a large extent control the type of vegetation found in an area and therefore also determine the wildlife found there.\" The article includes maps showing normal precipitation and normal mean temperatures from 1971-2000.

Each year the NC Wildlife Commission publishes a booklet, \"Permit Hunting Opportunities,\" both in print and on its website. The permit allows hunting for a specific number of days on various game lands for turkey, dove, deer bear, waterfowl, including tundra swan, geese, and small game. Green explains how hunters are selected for a permit. The article includes a map marking the state's 56 game lands in the Central Region, Piedmont Region, Mountain Region, and National Wildlife Refuges. Green describes hunting wild turkey for three days on a permit for Jordan Lake Game Land.

Abstract:
Almost 300 years ago Colonel William Byrd II described the Great Dismal Swamp as \"a great and dreary swamp not fit for man or beast.\" Today the swamp's 126,000 acres straddle the border of Virginia/North Carolina. It is a National Wildlife Refuge on the Virginia side and a state park on the North Carolina side in 2007. The swamp has become a place of enjoyment and education. In 2013 over 80,000 visitors came to the state park.
