An interview with Wendy Stanton.

Q: I know you have had years of experience with National Wildlife Refuges, but are presently both acting manager at Pocosin Lakes NWR and Biologist at Mattamuskeet, Swan Quarter and Cedar Island NWRs. That must be quite a lot of responsibilities. What are your biggest challenges?  

A: My biggest challenges include invasive species management and in particular setting back phragmites, alligator weed and sesbania on the refuges. In Lake Mattamuskeet, removing invasive common carp is also at the top
