As global temperatures and sea levels continue to rise, some organisms may thrive on Assateague Island while others may be replaced by more tolerant species. As storms intensify, the rate at which this Mid-Atlantic barrier island will experience overwash and rollover will increase. Ultimately, very different landscapes may change the access and experience that visitors enjoy today at Assateague Island National Seashore. While coastal areas are particularly vulnerable to sea-level rise and extreme weather events, inland areas are also being affected. This National Park Service site bulletin features the pro-active steps of adaptation, restoration, and protection being taken by the National Seashore, and also provides empowering suggestions for everyone to prepare for and cope with the effects of climate change.
