The Wildlife Society
Utah State University Student Chapter
The USU Chapter of The Wildlife Society is an organization for students who have an interest in wildlife conservation, management, and viewing. We help prepare students for careers dealing with wildlife by providing hands-on experience and professional networking. Our chapter's activities include things such as: field skill workshops, wildlife viewing opportunities, graduate student presentations, documentary nights, and professional conferences. We also provide information on wildlife job opportunities, undergraduate research opportunities, and volunteer opportunities through our email.
Over the years, we have worked to connect students with the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources (UDWR) by providing opportunities to participate in deer and duck check stations, deer and turkey trapping, bird banding, and other local management actions. Active students have the opportunity for an annual trip to Yellowstone and/or the annual Utah chapter meeting. Here students compete against BYU and other universities in a Wildlife Quiz Bowl, and we are currently the defending champions of the state title. We help plan the annual QCNR Logger's Ball and QCNR Week, host socials, and like to have fun! Participating in The Wildlife Society helps students network with other students, professionals in wildlife, and faculty- both within and outside of our university. Joining TWS is a great way to learn and gain experience while doing something you enjoy!
