Canadian Chapters of TWS
The Alberta Chapter of The Wildlife Society works for wildlife and works with wildlife. We are a 200+ strong group of biologists, managers, scientists, academics, students, consultants, and naturalists from across Alberta and the west dedicated to understanding and conserving Alberta's wildlife. We are affiliated with the international organization The Wildlife Society and the Canadian Section of TWS.
- We talk wildlife. People care about things they know about. As wildlife professionals, we share our love and understanding of Alberta's wildlife and wild places through public talks, social media, newsletters, and especially our acclaimed annual conferences, where new ideas for conserving Alberta's wildlife are born. Everyone is welcome!
- We walk the talk. We advocate for science-based wildlife management in Alberta, and provide science-based information and advice to help ensure wildlife's needs are met in public policy, legislation and programs. We work to provide a wildlife management perspective to local, regional, and provincial decision-making bodies. We offer information, advice, and champion policy that ensures wildlife populations persist as a benefit for all Alberta.
- We cultivate new biologists. New professionals carry forward the responsibilities to manage the future of Alberta's wildlife. We provide mentorship and training support, and host conferences that pass on new information. We provide student scholarships, conference travel grants, and awards for out wildlife work. For over 25 years we have provided tens of thousands of dollars in support; and are rewarded by knowing today's ACTWS students are tomorrow's Alberta wildlife professionals.
The Manitoba Chapter of The Wildlife Society is dedicated to the conservation and protection of our wildlife resource base, through initiatives in public awareness, education and professional development, while promoting and upholding responsible wildlife stewardship.
