“All students who plan to have a career in natural resources should make efforts to attend at least once. The experience is priceless for your career.”

–Matthew Burgess, University of Florida

The future of wildlife science and management lies in the hands and minds of students. That’s just one of the reasons why we’re proud to have almost 140 student chapters at universities across North America and make a special effort to create great opportunities for students at our Annual Conference.

Out of the hundreds of students who attended a recent conference, 69 percent of them said that their conference experience significantly enhanced their career planning, contacts and development.

So in addition to all of the great programs and activities available to all conference attendees, as a student you’ll have even more opportunities to learn from respected professionals and to share your insights. You’ll expand your network of contacts who may be able to assist you with internships and career opportunities. And you’ll have plenty of fun with other students!
