Hunting, Trapping, and Conservation Working Group
Welcome to the Hunting, Trapping, and Conservation Working Group of The Wildlife Society
The HTCWG promotes exploring issues associated with hunting and trapping relative to conservation and management of wildlife resources. To accomplish this, the Working Group serves as a forum for the study and transfer of information on this subject matter. The Working Group advocates science-based decisions regarding hunting and trapping and aims to increase awareness of hunting and trapping as a critical component of conservation. In doing this, the Working Group hopes to foster communication among TWS members about hunting and trapping issues, improve knowledge and technical capabilities of TWS members relative to hunting and trapping and promote science-based hunting and trapping outside TWS.
