Caption: The North Carolina Coastal Plain National Wildlife Refuge Complex is composed of nine refuges, which make up part of 560 national wildlife refuges, 38 wetland management districts and other protected land and water areas comprising 150 million acres. These areas often have fishing, hunting, wildlife and environmental interpretation and education, wildlife photography and wildlife observation. In a rapidly changing world, these safeguarded regions have thankfully been set aside not only for us, but for future generations.
