The Wildlife SocietyMISSION STATEMENT:

The Wildlife Society is committed to a world where humans and wildlife co-exist.

We work to ensure that wildlife and their habitats are conserved through management actions that take into careful consideration relevant scientific information.ESU TWS logo_greater prairie-chicken

We create opportunities for this to occur by involving professional wildlife managers, disseminating wildlife science, advocating for effective wildlife policy, and building the active support of an informed citizenry.

TWS’s 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 its 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.
