The red fox have been here for quite some time. Coyotes have only recently made their presence known on the barrier islands. Their adaption to living close to people in recent years has raised many concerns and misconceptions. Learn more about how these creatures interact with their environment, how to avoid conflicts, and how their presence here might even be beneficial. Come learn the truth about these animals, and have your questions answered.
