Upcoming Request for Proposal: Double-Crested Cormorants

In the coming weeks, The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission will issue a Request for Proposals (RFP - to be listed here) to investigate the movement and populations of wintering Double-Crested Cormorants (Phalacrocorax auritis) in North Carolina. The Commission is proposing a 2-year study beginning this winter to track monthly population levels, individual movements, and nest site associations. The overall purpose is to inform future management decisions for the species.

If you are interested or know of anyone who may be, please contact Scott Anderson (scott.anderson@ncwildlife.org) or Allen Boynton (allen.boynton@ncwildlife.org) to discuss details or be notified when the RFP is issued.
