This week on the Down East Journal, we report on the recent proposal to send fracking waste water to eastern North Carolina for storage. Also, an unusual number of arctic birds called dovekies are turning up along the coast often injured and malnourished. We speak with a local wildlife sanctuary about this phenomenon and why the birds are dying after being rehabilitated. Listen for the Down East Journal, Friday at noon on PRE, Public Radio East.
