The Point Off the Coast of Cape Hatteras

"The cold waters of the North Atlantic meet the Gulf Stream off Cape Hatteras at a place named The Point. Endangered right whales, sea turtles and migratory fishes congregate here to feed in the nutrient-rich waters. "Ecologically, this is one of the most important areas of the Western Atlantic," says our scientist Dr. Douglas Radar." (Excerpt from the article "Drawing the Line on Offshore Drilling," in the "Environmental Defense Newsletter," published by Environmental Defense, Sept. 2001, pg. 8)
