    Sea turtles and birds from Sunset Beach

    Sunset Beach sits both on the North Carolina mainland and on a barrier island across a narrow strait. It was once separated from nearby Bird Island by a channel, but this has since silted up to become a land connection. Bird Island is a nature preserve that not only features a wide variety of bird life, but is also the site of a sea turtle sanctuary. The sanctuary mainly protects the threatened loggerhead turtles by monitoring nests and hatchlings, as well as helping newly hatched turtles safely to the sea.
