Irene’s photographs portray the refuge in all its moods, from the tranquility of a pristine coastline to the magnificence of our nation’s wild creatures.

“Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge, An Ecological Treasure”

With large high quality images and limited but easy to understand text, I designed the book to be suitable for all ages. In it I describe the dynamics of barrier islands, how they naturally shift and change shape with storms, winds, waves and rising sea level. I introduce readers to the various habitats on the island and to the animals that live there. In addition, I cover the role that wildlife refuges play in protecting species, including those that are endangered or threatened.
