Members of The Wildlife Society can now readily locate published science pertaining to TWS’ ten policy priorities through our new Policy Priority Reference Lists.
The Policy Priority Reference Lists are a resource for wildlife professionals interested in understanding more about a specific policy priority by directing them to published science relevant to the issues. Nearly 500 articles were referenced from TWS peer-reviewed publications – Journal of Wildlife Management, Wildlife Monographs, Wildlife Society Bulletin – and TWS’ Technical Review Series.
“We see these lists as being a go-to resource for anyone researching wildlife policy and wanting to apply science-based solutions to their policy issue; it’s about bringing wildlife science into the conversation,” said Keith Norris, Assistant Director of Government Affairs & Partnerships.
TWS members are encouraged to refer to these lists – and the content of the articles in these lists – when educating decision-makers, the public, and other stakeholders on issues that affect wildlife.
The following Policy Priority Reference Lists are currently available for download:
- Climate Change and Adaptation
- Endangered Species Recovery
- Energy Development and Wildlife
- Funding for Wildlife Conservation
- Invasive Species Prevention and Management
- North American Model and Public Trust Doctrine
- Strategic Conservation Planning
