Working Group logo design contest

The Molecular Ecology Working Group of The Wildlife Society is accepting submissions for a new logo. The logo should reflect the working group as accessible and fun, and signal its interest in promoting incorporation of molecular genetic data into wildlife studies to advance ecology, management and conservation of wildlife. The logo must include the name “The Wildlife Society” and/or the society’s logo.

Please submit designs to Working Group Chair Emily Latch at by March 30, 2019.

The winning designer will receive a $100 prize and a one-year membership with the Working Group.

The Molecular Ecology Working Group aims to promote scientific advancement applying molecular techniques to wildlife ecology, management and conservation. The group seeks to enhance awareness of molecular ecology and genetic applications to wildlife biology and act as an informational and networking resource. The working group is intended to be broadly inclusive of the various aspects of molecular ecology that may be applicable to wildlife (e.g. genetic and genomic methods, conservation genetics, non-invasive genetic population monitoring, landscape genetics, evolutionary genetics, molecular forensics and many more).
