The Wildlife Society
The Wildlife Society (TWS), founded in 1937, is an international, non-profit, scientific and educational association dedicated to wildlife stewardship. Their mission is "to enhance the ability of wildlife professionals to conserve biodiversity, sustain productivity, and ensure responsible use of wildlife resources for the benefit of society." The Wildlife Society encourages professional growth through certification, peer-reviewed publications, conferences, and working groups. TWS 'sections' are regional networks of The Wildlife Society in North America and encompass several states or provinces. These sections bring a regional perspective to wildlife conservation issues and enable members to be active in professional affairs in a regional context, as well as promote cooperative efforts and the exchange of information among wildlife professionals and Wildlife Society chapters in a broad geographic area. Regional networks include the Northeast, Southeastern, North Central, Central Mountains & Plains, Southwest, Northwest, Western, and Canadian Section.
TWS has developed the 'Climate Change Library', a robust database of publications and resources related to climate change, which is accessible on their website.
