RALEIGH, N.C. — The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission is seeking nominations through April 30 for four seats on its Nongame Wildlife Advisory Committee — a board of North Carolina citizens that provides advice to the Wildlife Commission on nongame wildlife conservation issues across the state. Nominations are being accepted for expert and at-large seats on the Nongame Wildlife Advisory Committee.
Available seats, including relevant experience, are:
Expert affiliate seat: Nominees for these seats should have extensive biological, regional, academic, scientific and/or habitat expertise and experience in matters dealing with nongame wildlife conservation in North Carolina.
At-large affiliate seat: Nominees for these seats should be qualified individuals from land trusts serving North Carolina, federal natural resource agencies (other than the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service), non-governmental conservation organizations, industries with operations and/or management that have landscape-scale effects on wildlife, or other organizations that provide a stakeholder voice in wildlife resource conservation.

The Wildlife Commission asks committee members to participate actively throughout their terms. The committee meets four times a year, usually at the Commission’s headquarters in Raleigh.
