After an active duty tour with the Marines in Southern California, Eric Davis has been crawling up the East Coast. He started his biology career as a wildlife biologist at Marine Corps Base, Camp Lejeune, N.C. Then he joined the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service as an assistant supervisor in the Virginia Field Office. Now he serves as the field supervisor in the New Jersey Field Office.
Davis was born and raised in Greensboro, N.C. His high school biology teacher inspired him to become a biologist. He earned biology degrees from Duke University and the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and earned a degree in national security from the Naval War College. His master of science thesis studied the federally listed endangered Schweinitz's sunflower (Helianthus schweinitzii) and restoration of the Carolina Piedmont prairie community.
