The Georgia Chapter of The Wildlife
Society (Georgia TWS) is a professional organization dedicated to the
scientific conservation of wildlife resources, and to furthering the
education of those involved with, or interested in, wildlife
conservation. Georgia TWS promotes rigorous professional ethics
for wildlife scientists and managers, facilitates the exchange of
technical information, and
works to influence legislation impacting wildlife resources.
- MEMBERSHIP: Georgia
TWS is comprised of over 100 members representing universities, state,
and federal agencies, conservation organizations, and the general
public. Some members are involved with wildlife management in a
professional capacity, while others are involved simply because of
in wild animals and the management of these species and their habitats.
The Chapter officers function as the Executive Committee, and
of the organization's business is conducted via that body, with input
the general membership. However, there are numerous opportunities
for non-elected members to contribute to the Chapter.
- MEETINGS: Georgia
TWS meets once per year, in the late summer/early fall, in various locations around
the state. Occasionally we meet jointly with other state chapters
or other organizations. Meetings generally span two days, and
feature presentations detailing current issues in wildlife research,
management, and legislation. The meetings also address Chapter
business, and a new crop of officers is elected at the spring meeting
every two years. Georgia TWS meetings are not just about work.
They also provide opportunities for networking, socializing,
exploring local natural environments, and observing wildlife.
