Island Creek Basin Ecosystem: An Imperiled Biodiversity Hotspot
A Presentation by Andy Wood
The Island Creek Basin Ecosystem located in northeast New Hanover and
southeast Pender Counties, is a biodiverse and ecologically important natural
resource area under assault by development that will convert flood-prone
wetland habitat into human housing and other constructs, with taxpayer-funded
subsidies gifted to private developers. Conservation biologist Andy Wood will
introduce program participants to one of the world’s rarest and compelling
ecosystems, and steps being taken to help elected policymakers evaluate and
include its beneficial ecosystem services as part of their land and water use
