by Walter F. Clark, North Carolina State Univ, UNC Sea, Grant Coll Program, Raleigh, NC, USA,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Coastal Zone '85


North Carolina's coastal management program attempts to protect and manage a broad spectrum of the state's coastal resources. These resources range from valuable natural areas to areas containing deposits of cultural heritage. The successful nomination and designation of Permuda Island as the state's first cultural resources Area of Environmental Concern is important, not only because of the protection of the resources on the island, but also because of its clear message that these resources are important to the overall management of North Carolina's coastal area.
