Learn answers to these questions and more through the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission’s webinar series, “Understanding Our Wild Life - Wildlife Commission Science Informing Conservation.” Coordinated by Research Director David Cobb, this informative series allows Wildlife Commission staff to share their expertise, insights, and experiences to show how science informs the decisions made to conserve our state’s natural resources and improve our fishing, hunting, and wildlife-watching opportunities for all North Carolinians.
Survey, monitoring, and research projects are conducted in, and coordinated by staff in, the Wildlife Management, Inland Fisheries, Habitat Conservation, and Land and Water Access divisions, and the Office of Conservation Policy and Analysis. In addition to internal projects, our agency partners with more than 20 universities in North Carolina and across the country, many Non-governmental Organizations (like Trout Unlimited or Ducks Unlimited), and private consultants. It’s a win-win for all involved.
