The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has named Durwin Carter its new deputy supervisor of Area 1 for the southeast region’s National Wildlife Refuge System, effective June 18.

Carter has worked with the NWRS for 10 years, including the last four as project leader for Arkansas’ Holla Bend and Logan Cave National Wildlife Refuges.

“Durwin’s leadership skills in managing wildlife and their habitats and in community outreach will benefit everyone under his supervision,” U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service southeast regional director Cindy Dohner said in a news release.

“In his previous position, he guided local high school and college students to careers with the National Wildlife Refuge System and helped establish a group of community volunteers for Holla Bend Refuge, known as The Friends of Holla Bend National Wildlife Refuge.”

In his new role, Carter will help lead more than 250 staff members on 39 refuges across Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana and Tennessee.
