The primary objective of The Wildlife Society's Certification Program is to provide public and private clients and employers more positive access to professional advice in matters concerning wildlife resources. In support of this objective, The Wildlife Society maintains this registry of individuals who have undergone a critical peer evaluation and have been approved by the Certification Review Board as a Certified Wildlife Biologist or an Associate Wildlife Biologist. This registry is made available exclusively to assist in identifying certified individuals for professional wildlife purposes. Commercial or other uses are expressly prohibited.

TWS certification is not intended to operate as a representation, warranty or guarantee of the quality or performance of services provided by the certified wildlife biologist and TWS thereby disclaims any and all liability for any losses, damages, or injury or damage to persons or property arising out of such services.
