Smith Island

Record #:
North Carolina possesses one of the last remaining wilderness areas along the Atlantic Coast. It's called Smith Island, more popularly known as Bald Head. The island is home to a number of wildlife species and contains numerous salt marsh areas which produce food for resident fish and sea mammals. Cooper writes, “It is the last vestige in North Carolina of a primitive coast line. Unfortunately, plans are being made for its development, and, if steps are not taken to preserve its natural features, this last North Carolina coastal wilderness will disappear, transformed into a jungle of concrete, beach houses, and hotels.”
