Welcome to the home page of the Illinois Chapter of The Wildlife Society (ICTWS). Our main/international organization, The Wildlife Society (TWS), was founded in 1937 and is an international non-profit scientific and educational association dedicated to excellence in wildlife stewardship through science and education.

The Society and Illinois Chapter objectives are:

1.  Develop and promote sound stewardship of wildlife resources and the environments upon which wildlife and humans depend.

2.  Undertake an active role in preventing human-induced environmental degradation.

3.  Increase awareness and appreciation of wildlife values.

 4.  Promote the highest standards in all activities of the wildlife profession.

The Illinois Chapter strives to relate and apply these objectives to all problems and issues affecting wildlife resources of Illinois.
