WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH, NC (WECT) — A total of 174 beachgoers at Wrightsville Beach reportedly signed a pledge to "Be a good egg" via Audubon North Carolina over this past weekend.
The pledge is to share the beach with coastal birds, like Least Terns and Black Skimmers that nest at North Carolina's coast, during the peak tourist season. Audubon North Carolina kicked off the Good Egg/Share the Beach initiative on Sunday, June 26 to raise awareness about the water birds that nest and raise their young at the beach.
Beachgoers who signed the pledge were given "Good Egg" magnets and bags. They were also given a close-up look at newly-hatched birds through spotting scopes.
The team will be back at the south end of Wrightsville Beach on Saturday and Sunday, July 2-3. Anyone that would like to take the pledge online can go to www.goodeggnc.org.
