Did you know?

  • The reason that the Fish and Wildlife service is willing to give us grants for beach preservation is that an endangered species of Tiger Beetles live on our beach.
  • There are 23 species of Tiger Beetles that live in Virginia.
  • The threatened beetle in question is the Cicindela Dorsalis Dorsalis, the Northeastern Tiger Beetle. (Details are available here.)
  • For their size, tiger beetles are the fastest living land animals.
  • They are called tiger beetles because of the way they pounce on their prey.
