Cape Hatteras National Seashore
Yet another act of vandalism has struck nesting grounds at Cape Hatteras National Seashore -- this time involving a turtle nest -- and in turn seashore officials expanded the off-limits boundary area around the site.
Cape Hatteras National Seashore authorities are trying to determine who removed fencing that had been set up to protect a sea turtle's nest not far from Rodanthe. Rangers say it doesn't appear as if the nest was disturbed. Not only did they again fence the site, but they expanded the area protected as required under a court-ordered consent decree pertaining to beach access.
