Mammals play an important ecological role within the foodwebs of the Seashore. Small mammals, such as voles and mice, eat plant material and invertebrates. In turn, they serve as food items for carnivorous mammals (e.g. foxes, coyotes, and weasels), snakes and birds of prey. The Seashore also serves as important resting and foraging habitat for a number of marine mammals. Learn more about mammals found at CCNS below.
