Welcome to the Virginia Chapter of The Wildlife Society!

Welcome to the Virginia Chapter of The Wildlife Society (TWS) website. The website provides up to date information on meetings and workshops sponsored by the Virginia Chapter TWS. Our chapter is comprised of wildlife biologists and natural resource professionals from across Virginia, representing a wide variety of wildlife and natural resource interests, from governmental, private and academic agencies.

The Virginia Chapter holds an annual meeting generally featuring a selected topic or theme with solicited speakers, but also includes invited papers on research or other wildlife related topics from our membership and a special session for student papers (for which cash prizes are awarded for the best). Our annual Chapter business meeting and awards presentation are conducted at our annual meeting as well.

Thank you for visiting our Virginia Chapter TWS website and we trust you will find it interesting and informative. Please consider joining our chapter, especially if you are in Virginia.

A membership form can be downloaded here.
