Formed in 1982, the federation focuses on three main program areas: habitat restoration and protection; environmental education; and the encouragement of sound environmental rules and regulations and their enforcement. The federation’s headquarters is located in Ocean. It also maintains field offices in Wrightsville Beach and in Wanchese.
