Carly works as the Coastal Plain Conservationist for Wildlands Network in southeastern North Carolina. Her focus is on landowner outreach to show support and tolerance for the red wolf recovery program. Carly works with Ron Sutherland and Emily Blanchard to gather evidence of red wolves coexisting with other wildlife in the red wolf recovery area through our camera trapping project.
Before joining Wildlands Network, Carly worked in conservation with the North Carolina Aquarium at Roanoke Island and the Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge as a biology intern. She received her B.S. in Environmental Science from North Carolina Wesleyan College in 2014, working in science education until mid-2018.
Carly currently lives in Manns Harbor, North Carolina with her husband, Zach, and her two dogs, Gander and Oakley. In her free time, she enjoys kayaking, bike riding, and watching sports. She loves to go camping and walking with her dogs in the great outdoors.
