The Down East Journal (08/26/16)

Sep 12, 2016

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's Red Wolf Recovery Program is responsible for the reintroduction of the species declared biologically extinct in the 1980s.  Now, after decades of work, they may dismantle the program all together. This week on the Down East Journal, we speak with local conservation groups who recently held rallies to show their support and we hear from private landowners in the red wolf recovery area that want to see the program end. Plus, Cape Lookout National Seashore is marking the National Park Centennial by waiving entrance fees and holding special activities this weekend.  We speak with Superintendent Pat Kenney about what Cape Lookout, voted best national park beach earlier this year, has to offer.   And, a new photography exhibit opens in Oriental featuring old country stores of North Carolina.
