Red-Cockaded Woodpeckers Find Safe Harbor in Agreement

Part 2 - “It’s really nice to work with a landowner like Mr. Bacon who is so passionate about wildlife management of all kinds,” Carpenter said.“The addition of this Safe Harbor Agreement on Orton Plantation Holdings is particularly important because of its size and because of its proximity to other nearby pine forests in Boiling Springs Lakes and Military Ocean Terminal Sunny Point in Southport where there are good populations of red-cockaded woodpeckers. Orton will be contributing significantly to the sustainability and possible growth of southeastern North Carolina’s RCW populations.”
For more information on nongame and endangered wildlife in North Carolina, visit the Commission's Conservation page. The Safe Harbor Program for Red-Cockaded Woodpeckers in North Carolina. The Safe Harbor Program was developed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service under the Endangered Species Act to benefit the red-cockaded woodpecker through voluntary habitat improvements by landowners. In North Carolina, the Safe Harbor Program for Red-Cockaded Woodpeckers is administered by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in the Sandhills region and by the Wildlife Commission in the remainder of the state. Any property owner can apply for enrollment in the Safe Harbor Program. However, all enrolled properties and the habitat management activities performed on those properties must provide an overall conservation benefit to red-cockaded woodpeckers.
