During this live panel, we will celebrate the success of the first year of Wildlife Vocalizations. Wildlife Vocalizations(WV) are a collection of short personal perspectives with the purpose of uplifting and amplifying the diverse voices in the wildlife profession. Each featured wildlifer answers one question that reflects on the past and looks toward the future, providing a voice that shows we are not alone. We will offer a platform for wildlifers to reflect on the last year, share their stories and experiences in greater detail, discuss common themes, and envision the future of the wildlife profession. This session will incorporate a panel discussion as well as Wildlife Vocalizations submissions presented through spoken word poetry. This panel will be a space to celebrate, connect with, and listen to the many voices of those in the wildlife profession.
