The fire-dependent longleaf pine ecosystem is one of the most imperiled and fascinating in North America. North Carolina has some of the best remaining examples. High-frequency, low-intensity fires favor unique species adapted to this forest; without fire, the forest degrades and the iconic longleaf-associated species disappear. The Nature Conservancy’s Director of Longleaf Pine Restoration, Jeff Marcus, offers a unique presentation through the eyes of a Carolina gopher frog undertaking his annual breeding migration.
