Currituck National Wildlife Refuge
Currituck NWR, located on the northern end of North Carolina's Outer Banks, was established in 1984 to preserve and protect the coastal barrier island ecosystem. Refuge lands are managed to provide wintering habitat for waterfowl and to protect endangered species such as piping plover, sea turtles, and sea beach amaranth.
Currituck NWR consists of six seperate units all located between Corolla, NC and the NC/VA stateline. To access the refuge, follow NC Route 12 north until it ends in Corolla. At this point all traffic is diverted to the beach (four-wheel drive is required). The first refuge tract is located about 3/4-mile north of this point. Currituck NWR is managed by the staff at Mackay Island NWR, therefore, no building or other facilities exist on the refuge.www.hobogrill.org
