Upcoming Webinars

August 24, 2022 from  1:00 -2:00 pm ET

How Do We Get the Discussion about Non-Lead from Non-Starter to Non-Issue?

Hosted by – TWS Wildlife Toxicology Working Group

Time to go ballistic? Are copper bullets the fruit of anti-hunting propaganda? Join this webinar for a breakdown of non-lead ammunition, a crash course in its controversy, and bits of wisdom for hunters, shooters, and conservationists today. We’ll dive into the last decade of rhetoric on a topic hotly debated from litigation halls to hunting camp. Let’s hasten the transition to alternative ammunition, avoid being castigated as gun-grabbing-no-nothings, and go ballistic with non-toxic ethics for wildlife and the shooting sports.

Past Webinars

June 2022 – Change. It’s what’s on the table

We hear a lot about diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) these days. What do these terms mean to you and what changes are needed for the wildlife profession to become more inclusive? We’ll start with the type of change that will help our DEI efforts and profession grow, then provide some uplifting examples of successful allyship for underrepresented groups in wildlife. You’ll hear from 3 of the 42 authors of the upcoming book “Women of Wildlife Science: Building Equity, Diversity and Inclusion,” (https://www.press.jhu.edu/books/title/12272/women-wildlife-science). This book provides practical advice on how to be an ally and support women, LGBTQ+, People of Color, Indigenous, and other marginalized communities. We want to highlight a path forward to increasing diversity, equity, and inclusion. The 3 authors are Diana Doan-Crider, Mamie Parker, and Katie O’Donnell. Hosted by – Women of Wildlife Community Team 

May 2022 -The Federal 411 on SARS-CoV-2 and Wildlife

Hear from experts at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), U.S. Department of Agriculture – Wildlife Services and U.S. Geological Survey – National Wildlife Health Center on the latest research and findings on SARS-CoV-2 in free-ranging wildlife. This update will cover the topics that wildlife biologists need to know and will leave time for the panel to answer your questions. Hosted by  Wildlife Diseases Working Group.

April 2022 -Going Global: The Role of TWS International Student Chapters Going Forward

Coming off the heels of forming the first student chapter outside North America, the International Wildlife Management and Student Development Working Groups have teamed up! We wanted to give the floor to students and educators from both Norway, the US, and beyond to ask them their opinions about the role of TWS in supporting international student chapters moving forward. We hope you join us and help spark conversations about the quality of education in different countries, experiences working or studying abroad, and why international students are (or are not) interested in TWS.  Hosted by the  International Wildlife Management Working Group and Student Development Working Group.
