About the Complex


Pee Dee National Wildlife Refuge is managed as part of the Carolina Sandhills National Wildlife Refuge Complex.  A National Wildlife Refuge Complex is an administrative grouping of two or more refuges, wildlife management areas or other refuge conservation areas that are managed from a central office location. Refuges are grouped into a complex because they occur in a similar ecological region, such as a watershed or specific habitat type, and have related purposes and management needs. Typically, a project leader or complex manager oversees the general management of all refuges within the complex, and the refuge managers are responsible for operations at specific refuges.

Other refuges in the complex include: Carolina Sandhills National Wildlife Refuge:  http://www.fws.gov/refuge/Carolina_Sandhills/
