Exploring North Carolina

The Edge of Life

Season 1 Episode 7 | 26m | Video has closed captioning.

Much of the life on the North Carolina Coast has its beginning in vast spartina marshes. The birds, turtles, mollusks, finfish, and crustaceans that depend on marshes will be your hosts in this shallow, quiet world of beauty and productivity. The salt marsh is a place where North meets South, in that many plants and animals are at their southern-most or northern-most range here in North Carolina.
