Position Statements and Other Policy Engagement Documents

What are Position Statements?

As leaders in wildlife science, management and conservation, The Wildlife Society has a responsibility to address national and international issues that affect the current and future status of wildlife in North America and throughout the world. The diligent development of authoritative statements on wildlife issues is essential for interjecting wildlife concerns into decision-making processes.

Position Statements are broad and topical statements on a wildlife issue that defines the issue, contains factual background data, describes the most probable biological, social, and economics results of alternative actions, and may also contain a recommended course(s) of action.

The statements linked below have been formally adopted by the Colorado Chapter of The Wildlife Society’s Executive Board, following member review and comment periods.
