The Pamlico Sound
By Jackson Washington
The Pamlico sound is located in the Outer Banks and has animals and plants such as the Loggerhead Sea Turtle, the Bald Eagle, many oak trees, and rabbits and squirrels. The Pamlico sound and other estuaries are important because they provide a habitat for various kinds of animals and provide excellent places for fishing. The Roanoke, Tar-Pamlico, and Neuse river are all rivers that feed into the sound. One threat to estuaries in the outer banks is oil drilling. Oil drilling can bring in profit but it can also cost a lot in damage if not taken care of properly. If there were to be an oil spill, the sound could be damaged forever and most of the organisms in the sound would die.
