Currituck NWR, in northeastern North Carolina, consists of 4,570 acres of fee simple land and 3,931 acres of conservation easements. Of the fee simple land, 2,202 acres are brackish marsh, 778 acres are brackish shrub, 637 acres are maritime forest, 202 acres are dune, and 143 acres are managed wetlands (impoundments). Currituck NWR was established in 1984 to conserve and protect the coastal barrier island ecosystem. These refuge lands are managed to provide wintering habitat for waterfowl, shorebirds, wading birds, marsh birds, and neotropical migratory songbirds, as well as to protect threatened and endangered species, such as piping plovers, sea turtles, and the sea beach amaranth. We announce our decision and the availability of the final CCP and FONSI for Currituck NWR in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) [40 CFR 1506.6(b)] requirements.
