Oysters are vital to maintaining a sound coastal ecosystem. Healthy populations of oysters indicate a healthy environment. The North Carolina Coastal Federation (NCCF) works to protect and restore NC's coast through education, advocacy and habitat preservation and restoration. Among its many initiatives, NCCF works with citizens to educate and involve them in restoring and protecting the state’s populations of oysters.
