The Wildlife Society at UC Davis is a student organization that meets and hosts events every quarter. They are a chapter of the larger national organization, The Wildlife Society.
The Wildlife Society (TWS) is an international, nonprofit organization of wildlife professions and students dedicated to excellence in wildlife through science and education. TWS has worked to improve wildlife conservation by advancing the science of wildlife management, promoting continuing education of wildlife professionals, and advocating for sound, science-based wildlife policy.
On a student chapter level, The Wildlife Society is involved in connecting students with wildlife professionals in the area, to give them an opportunity to get involved in labs/internships. Events such as hikes to Cache Creek or Reptile Searching with faculty are common.
The Wildlife Society currently puts out a newsletter, The Grassland Gazette, every month. It details local wildlife events, the events run by the society and a featured article written by one of the officers on a local conservation issue.
Currently, The Wildlife Society has no club meetings.
