Sections are the regional networks of The Wildlife Society in North America. Each section encompasses several states, provinces, or republics.  Sections promote networking, cooperative efforts and the exchange of information among wildlife professionals and Wildlife Society chapters in a geographic area.


Chapters generally use a state or province boundary to define their memberships, although more or less than one state or province may be served by a chapter depending upon local membership needs. Each chapter has its own by-laws, officers, events and activities that support the mission of The Wildlife Society.
