The MISSION of the Northeast Section of The Wildlife Society is to foster excellence in wildlife stewardship through science and education among wildlife professionals within the northeastern United States. To accomplish this we are involve with numerous activities.

The Annual Meeting for TWS will be held in Pittsburgh, PA in 2015 and will provide ample opportunity for volunteerism. We also have a number of issues related to the energy sector potentially affecting wildlife in the northeast and we will need expertise in dealing with them. If you have a desire to be involved please contact me and I will be happy to take you up on your request. Any questions or concerns regarding wildlife or TWS in the northeast are also welcome.
