Who We Are & What We Do
Wildlife biology professionals, scientists, academics, students, communicators and citizen advocates throughout Alberta and western Canada.
We are a non-profit Chapter of the US-based The Wildlife Society. We have over 400 members and are governed by a volunteer board and coordinated by an executive director.
So much of our work is addressed and accomplished with the help of dedicated members who volunteer their time and expertise to meet our mission. Our active committees are:
- Conservation Affairs
- Education and Information
- Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion.
Learn more about them on our Volunteer Committees page.
