simple actions can help in a big way
What action can I do?
This month you can help animals by not throwing food out of your car window onto the roadside.
Why should I help?
Did you know that some birds like owls hunt for rodents and other small animals and are often hit by cars while they are hunting on the roadside? Small rodents will eat any food they find on roadsiedes, such as apple cores or other litter. These rodents can then attract owls and other birds to the roadside. These birds, being too close to fast moving traffic, can be hit by cars.
how can I help?
- Keep litter, food included, inside the car! This is an easy way to preserve owl populations!
The Ocean is In Our Hands!
The NC Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores is proud to have joined a collection of 19 aquariums across the country to launch the In Our Hands campaign.
The campaign's initiative is for everyone to reduce single-use plastic and choose alternatives instead.
We're walking the walk too - replacing plastic straws with paper straws in our snack bars and adding water bottle refilling stations next to our water fountains.
The future of the ocean and lakes and rivers is In Our Hands!
You can help and do your part!
