Sea level rise could endanger the $135 million in assets of the Assateague Island National Seashore.
That’s according to a recent report from the Department of Interior.
Some estimates put the rise as high as one meter over the next 150 years.
That, the report says, would overwhelm 95 percent of the park including roads, fences and the watering station.
The Salisbury Daily Times reports that as a result park officials in Virginia have made buildings on the island moveable.
This would allow them to bring the structure further inland.
