Welcome to the Kentucky Chapter of The Wildlife Society

The Kentucky Chapter of The Wildlife Society is a non-profit organization concerned with excellence in wildlife stewardship using science and education.

The Chapter seeks to enhance the ability of wildlife professionals in Kentucky to conserve diversity, sustain productivity, and ensure responsible use of the Commonwealth’s wildlife resources. Our membership is diverse and includes representatives from a variety of state and federal agencies, academic institutions, non-governmental conservation organizations, and private industry. Chapter members are dedicated to sustainable management of wildlife resources and their habitats.


  1. Bats and Forest Management in a Changing Environment: A Workshop/Training for Land Managers. The Kentucky Chapter hosted this one-day workshop on March 3, 2016 at Eastern Kentucky University. Its purpose was to inform wildlife and forestry professionals in our area about forest management in the context of federally listed bat species, including the implications of the recent ESA listing of the northern long-eared bat (Myotis septentrionalis). To view the presentations from the workshop click here.
