talks about seashore
issues on radio show....WITH AUDIO
Hallac, superintendent of the
Cape Hatteras National Seashore, was the guest on the most recent
edition of the Radio Hatteras interview show, "To the Point,"
which was broadcast on Sunday, May 17.
the interview, Hallac talks about
the alterations in wildlife protection buffers that have been
proposed by the National Park Service in response to legislation
passed in Congress last December.
the first week in May, the Park
Service hosted five meetings to present its Environmental Assessment
on the alterations and to explain them to the public. The meetings
were in Ocracoke, Buxton, Raleigh, Hampton, Va., and Kitty Hawk.
the interview, Hallac discusses the
proposals at more length and talks about the meetings, the public's
reaction, and other seashore issues.
of the points he covers are:
The North Carolina Wildlife Resources
Commission's recommendations to the Park Service.
The seashore's protection of species that are
not federally listed as threatened or endangered.
How the habitat for nesting shorebirds has
changed at the seashore
Extending the "bypass" to Cape Point.
Proposed science workshops that would be open
to the public and would focus on the difference management makes in
nesting success, as opposed to all the other variables.

hosted by Island Free Press editor Irene Nolan, airs on the island's
