Pamlico Sound

North Carolina's Largest Estuary

Location

Found in the Outer Banks of North Carolina

Importance

It provides habitats for animals and provides job oppurtunities for fishermen

Threats

There are many threats to our estuary but the one i will talk about is pollution. This is actually a threat everywhere. So it actually causes fast erosion here and makes the waters very murky but also trash left on beaches can be carried across rivers to estuaries and could contaminate the waters.
