How does your money help?
The Wildlife Society is committed to a world where humans and wildlife co-exist. Our members manage, conserve, and study wildlife populations and habitats (yes these people spend hours in front of spreadsheets, slog through mud, withstand buggy and unfavorable weather conditions and the like, all to better manage the amazing, interesting, sometimes feathery or fuzzy or slimy or slithery wild things, you were either inspired by, read about, tracked, or perhaps feared, but nonetheless impacted your childhood). 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. We are active across the United States, and internationally including Canada and Mexico. It takes a lot of hard work, dedication and leadership.
Who will lead these unsung heroes that work to find where the wild things are, were, or may be (outside of our imagination)?
With nearly 70 percent of leaders in the wildlife profession projected to retire in the next decade, The Wildlife Society has a responsibility to help prepare the next generation of leaders.
Our Leadership Institute provides a 6 month series of activities to develop and expand the leadership skills of promising young wildlife professionals. The project allows 10-15 young and diverse professional members to network, build self-awareness and leadership skills, attend the TWS Annual Conference, and establish mentorship relationships.
Training the wildlife professionals of the future helps The Wildlife Society to ensure that wildlife and habitats are conserved through sound management, which carefully considers relevant scientific information. Please help wildlife and the dedicated leaders of tomorrow with your donation today!
