How does your money help?
The Wildlife Society (TWS) is a scientific organization for professionals who manage and conserve wildlife and habitats. Unfortunately the current wildlife profession is not as ethnically or culturally diverse as the wildlife and habitats its committed to managing and conserving. To help diversify and grow the wildlife professional community and meet the nation’s conservation challenges TWS has started the Professional-Development Program for Native American Students.
The Native American community has enormous potential to enrich diversity within the wildlife profession. Tribal lands are important to a national strategy for fish and wildlife conservation, and Native American students are showing a growing interest in pursuing careers in wildlife. TWS has an active Native People’s Wildlife Management Working Group composed of wildlife professionals and students, tribal and non-tribal, who recognize native people’s cultural, spiritual, and biological connections to the land.
The Professional-Development Program for Native American Students would provide eligible Native American undergraduate and graduate wildlife and biology students… (with,... wait for it)
