Upcoming Request for Proposal: Henslow's Sparrow Breeding Ecology

The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission will soon issue a Request for Proposals (RFP - to be listed here) to investigate the breeding ecology of Henslow’s sparrows (Ammodramus henslowii) at its Voice of America Game Land in Beaufort County, NC. The Commission is proposing a 2-3 year study beginning Spring 2018 with the primary objective of quantifying sparrow reproductive success in relation to the use of prescribed fire.  The results of this study will be used to inform future management decisions for the species.

If you are interested or know of anyone who may be, please contact John Carpenter (john.carpenter@ncwildlife.org) to discuss details or be notified when the RFP is issued.
