Wildlife Dispatchers, the Voices Behind 1-800-662-7137

Some of the most important people for the outdoors work indoors.

Dispatchers with the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission spend their careers in an insulated, security-sealed room on the fourth floor of headquarters in Raleigh, but the work they do enables Wildlife Officers in the field to do their job more effectively and safely.  Dispatchers are on duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year for the Wildlife Commission.  The dispatch center holds phones, radios for a statewide network, computers that link to licenses files, criminal records and boating registration.  They receive hundreds of calls a day from the public, other agencies and with wildlife officers.

Telecommunications supervisor Kelvin Moses says when it comes to watching out for conservation and sportsmen, “you can’t underestimate the role of the general public. People will work with you; they really are an extra set of eyes and ears in the field.”

Dispatchers are the unseen but heard heroes of the Commission. But don’t call to thank them: Use the toll free number for official business only.

There is a deer carcass improperly disposed of at one of smith creeks banks off South Kerr ave. it is a small area under one of the little bridges right past grathwol drive, wilmington, NC
if you go over the bridge you've gone to far. there are alot of small john boats and paddle boats that put in there. I Found the deer carcus yesterday while walking the dog!

please enforce the laws of improper disposal of wild animals. Ignorance of the LAW is no excuse for people to get away with this kind of crime!

thank you
