|PROTECTING OUR LOCAL WILD HORSES|
Cape Lookout National Seashore and the Rachel Carson Reserve are both home to wild horses.
The horses do not swim back and forth between Shackelford Banks and RCR, but they do swim between marsh islands on their respective reserves.
If you get too close to a wild horse, you could be charged, kicked or bitten. Watch from at least 50 feet. If horses come toward you, move away or, if you can't, stay very still while they pass. Horses have the right-of-way. If a horse stops what it's doing to stare at you, stop or back up.
The wild horses are protected by law. Feeding, touching, teasing or intentionally disturbing wildlife, including horses, is dangerous and illegal. The best way to enjoy observing the wild horses is to use binoculars and watch them from afar.

Launched in 1986 in New Zealand and named for the heroine in Paul Gallico’s book, The Snow Goose, the brigantine Fritha was built by traditional methods to unparalleled standards of excellence in materials and craftsmanship.
The 74 ft wooden brigantine is owned and operated by Northeast Maritime Academy out of Fairhaven, MA. She operates in various cities along the east coast of the United States offering a variety of educational programs.
Northeast Maritime Academy wrote, "As a traditional Brigantine, the S/V Fritha serves as a multi-platform asset that facilitates our students and clients needs. Fritha provides the opportunity for hands on training in navigation, marlin-spike seamanship, marine ecology, and the lost art of square rig sailing."
