  Reminds me of a story

On my first trip to an ocean beach - ever - I was enamored by the Outer Banks of North Carolina in general and the Pamlico Sound in particular. Because I could see that a great deal of effort into conservation had been done, I called NC Fish & Wildlife to see if there were any ecological volunteer opportunities that week.

The person who answered asked if I could handle a canoe. I told her that I could. She then said if I could meet them early the next morning for a wildlife tagging opportunity. I told her that I could, but then thought to ask what the wildlife was. She told me they were meeting up near Avon and then driving over to the Alligator River to tag alligators.

I told her that there has GOT to be a better craft from which to assault alligators than a canoe and declined the opportunity. She laughed and said they had been getting that response quite a bit.
