The Wildlife Society is committed to a world where humans and wildlife co-exist. We work to ensure that wildlife and habitats are conserved through management actions that take into careful consideration relevant scientific information. We create opportunities for this to occur by involving professional wildlife managers, disseminating wildlife science, advocating for effective wildlife policy and law, and building the active support of an informed citizenry.
Our mission is to represent and serve the professional community of scientists, managers, educators, technicians, planners, and others who work actively to study, manage, and conserve wildlife and habitats worldwide.
The members of The Wildlife Society manage, conserve, and study wildlife populations and habitats. They actively manage forests, conserve wetlands, restore endangered species, conserve wildlife on private and public lands, resolve wildlife damage and disease problems, and enhance biological diversity. TWS members are active across the United States, Canada, and Mexico, as well as internationally.
The products of The Wildlife Society include essential, practical, and objective information for wildlife professionals. We provide research, policy information, and practical tools in print and electronic forms, along with vibrant professional networks that allow solutions to wildlife conservation and management challenges to be anchored in science.
