Hatteras Island Ocean Center

About Hatteras Island Ocean Center

The Hatteras Island Ocean Center is a private non-profit located in Hatteras, North Carolina. We offer programs to the public about sea turtles, beach dynamics, wetland ecology, and much more. In addition to our programs, our facility houses an exhibit hall filled with information about the local environment along with live, native animal species on display. Our mission is to revitalize Hatteras Island economically in a way that is sustainable, without changing the basic character of the area, thereby making Hatteras Island a better place to live and visit. We will accomplish this by facilitating improved use of the Island’s natural, cultural, and historic resources, and the result will be a Hatteras Island with a vibrant multi-season economy.

“I personally enjoy that everyday proved to be a different experience no matter what program or task was being done. I also like the connections that this internship was a gateway to trying. For example, I was given the opportunity to do multiple ride-along trips with the National Park Service's Law Enforcement branch on the Hatteras Island National Seashore and the Biologist Teams for the Park Service. ”
