Recognizing our Peers
The Wildlife Society’s Awards Program annually honors professional excellence, recognizes outstanding achievement and highlights contributions to wildlife science and management.
Through the years, many new awards have been established to recognize accomplishments in wildlife publications, management, science and professionalism. Special recognition by The Wildlife Society promotes the professional growth of our members, provides our membership with role models and strengthens the image of our membership in the eyes of their peers, employers, our leadership and society.
We encourage members to recognize the contributions of their peers by participating in the nomination process. Detailed nomination instructions and criteria are published in December for the upcoming year.
