A Note From Habitat Manager Andy Wood

Southeast North Carolina has long been recognized as an area of unrivaled ecological wonders. This place is home to more different kinds of plants and animals than anywhere in the Atlantic Coastal Plain, north of Florida. 

Now more than ever, the Northeast New Hanover Conservancy needs your financial support to maintain and preserve this special ecoregion.  

This region’s great biological diversity, and the threats our actions pose to that diversity, have earned this place the unenviable moniker of “biodiversity hotspot.” 

As the ever-warming ocean expands its reach inland it is imperative for the Conservancy to protect the upstream forest habitat and thoughtfully manage these crucial ecosystems.
