Policy Resources

The Wildlife Society engages a broad range of policy arenas related to wildlife research, management, and conservation. Staff advance science-based policies that support wildlife professionals and their work by communicating with Congress, the Administration, and relevant state, provincial and federal agencies, and preparing and facilitating the development of position statements, technical reviews, fact sheets, policy briefs, policy priority reference lists, and news articles. The Wildlife Society also supports TWS Sections and Chapters with policy engagement in local or regional issues through the Conservation Affairs Network and its Policy Toolkit.
