2022-11-24 @ 08:00 2022-12-11 @ 17:00 MST

Fundraising Goal: $10,000

Wild LOVE is back on and there are three ways for you to support the ACTWS! The more ways you can give, the more we all WIN!

50-50 Raffle

Support the ACTWS and WIN cash!

Our 50-50 raffle puts money in both of our pockets! The more tickets you buy, the bigger the pot. You could potentially win thousands of dollars!

You get a head start on Christmas shopping, and we get to plan another great Hot Topic webinar series for 2023. Wait… you win twice! Money in your pocket and great professional development in the new year!

ACTWS keeps 50% of donations.

Opens November 28, 2022 | Closes December 11, 2022

Experience Auction

We’ve got three amazing experiences to choose from this year! A mountain weekend with a local biologist, a hunting weekend on the eastern slopes, and a women’s fly fishing afternoon. So many ways for you to appreciate Alberta wilderness and learn from the experts at the SAME time! These experiences make great gifts for someone on your holiday shopping list… even if that someone is YOU!

ACTWS keeps 100% of donations

Bidding open from December 1 to December 11, 2022


If you want all of your dollars to go straight to the ACTWS and none of the experiences in the auction interest you, then just donate! Your contributions are what keep us going year after year. All donations go directly towards our Executive Director position, student awards, professional development opportunities, and other programs to further the wildlife profession in Alberta. Every dollar counts. Can you donate $20 today and then ask three friends to do the same?

Your Support Matters

The ACTWS is a non-profit organization that relies on the generous and continued support of its members, supporters, and sponsors throughout the year. Our mission is to inspire and empower wildlife professionals to engage in science-based management and conservation of wild animals and their habitats.

To meet this mission, we work everyday to:

Inspire – bringing you webinars, newsletters, and information sharing the latest innovative, influential, and applicable wildlife science to help you advance science-based wildlife management either in your professional or personal lives.

Empower – offering an array of student awards for the next generation of “wildlifers”, sharing a series of virtual workshops to help enhance your skills, and keeping you apprised of opportunities to share your skills and perspectives.

Engage – our annual conference is THE wildlife event of the year where hundreds of wildlife professionals, students, and enthusiasts gather to learn, share, collaborate and advance wildlife and habitat science and management in Alberta. We also engage the broader Alberta public through various outreach events with partners across the province.

This work serves as the foundation of effective wildlife and habitat management in Alberta. Something that each Albertan and all wildlife species benefit from daily.

ALL funds raised during this Wild LOVE campaign go directly towards the above programs and the capacity required to support them.

We are so grateful for your support.
