Rep. Carney Tours Prime Hook Wildlife Refuge

Last week, in continuation of his Climate Change Week, United States Congressman Carney visited the Prime Hook Wildlife Refuge in Milton and the DuPont Nature Center in Milford. Congressman Carney joined Al Rizzo and Art Coppola of the National Fish and Wildlife Service at Prime Hook for a tour of the refuge. The group discussed the ongoing restoration efforts and the effects of sea level rise on Delaware’s coast.

Later, Congressman Carney met with Dawn Cox and Marlene Mervine at the DuPont Nature Center, where he got up close and personal with some local wildlife. Carney learned about the impacts climate change has had on Delaware wildlife, while also having the opportunity to feed and release a horseshoe crab.

“Spending the day outdoors at Prime Hook and the DuPont Center was a great reminder of what a treasure Delaware’s nature truly is,” said Congressman Carney. “From the red knots to horseshoe crabs, we have incredible wildlife here, and I appreciate the efforts of these groups to protect our species and their habitats.”
