NC Audubon Kicks Off "Good Egg" Initiative

In June the NC Chapter of the Audubon Society kicked off their "Good Egg/Share the Beach Initiative".  Designed to raise awareness of the importance of undisturbed beach habitats for nesting shorebirds, the initiative encourages beach-goers pledge to:

  • Stay out of areas where birds are nesting.

  • Keep dogs on a leash and out of nesting areas.

  • Share the beach with nesting birds and their young.


The initiative began with a survey of Pender, New Hanover, and New Brunswick counties to assess awareness of nesting birds in their area.  A large proportion of respondents did not fully realize the importance of beach habitats to nesting shorebirds.  For more information, check out their announcement.
