The mission of the Alaska Chapter of The Wildlife Society is to benefit the long-term health of Alaska’s wildlife and the sustained use and enjoyment of these resources by the public we collectively serve. In meeting our mandate, the Alaska Chapter serves as an objective, science-based organization that provides information and thoughtful analysis on important and relevant issues pertaining to conservation of wildlife and their habitats.
The Alaska Chapter was founded in 1971. It is a nonprofit organization of professional wildlife biologists dedicated to excellence in wildlife stewardship through science and education. Our Chapter is one of the largest in the country. We have over 200 members in state and federal agencies, academic institutions, non-governmental organizations, and private industry.
We actively promote the conservation of wildlife and their habitats through educational outreach and the production of technical reviews and position papers.
