This board of North Carolina citizens provides advice to the Commission on nongame wildlife conservation issues across the state. Nominations are needed for expert and at-large seats. Nominees for expert seats must have extensive biological, regional, academic, scientific and/or habitat expertise and experience in matters regarding nongame wildlife conservation in North Carolina. Nominees for at-large seats should be from organizations that provide a stakeholder voice in wildlife resource conservation — including land trusts, federal natural resource agencies, conservation nonprofits and industries that impact wildlife — and should have comprehensive knowledge of nongame wildlife conservation in North Carolina.
The 19-member committee meets four times each year, usually in Raleigh. The Wildlife Commission will appoint new members in July.
