The Texas Chapter of The Wildlife Society’s annual meeting will be in a virtual format, this year, focusing on human-wildlife conflict management.

“The Texas Chapter of The Wildlife Society strives to become the acknowledged source of scientific information and expertise concerning wildlife biology and management in Texas,” the chapter said. “This year, we have moved our annual meeting to a virtual format via Attendify.”

The meeting will take place Feb. 24-26, 2021. Plenary speaker Michael J. Bodenchuk, Director of Texas Wildlife Services, will add to the conference’s theme on managing human-wildlife conflict. The meeting will also include six professional workshops, ranging from topics covering TWS Certification to Understanding Land Trusts and the Importance of Opportunities for Conservation Easements in Texas.

Additionally, the chapter will have a special session for students to help guide them in the field as they transition to becoming professionals. This year, eight presenters will compete for the Clarence Cottam Award, the most prestigious student award given by TCTWS. Overall, attendees can hear from over 60 presentations and view over 40 posters.

You can support the Texas Chapter of The Wildlife by donating directly to TCTWS or participating in our online raffle.
