The Student Chapter is part of The Wildlife Society, the national and international society of wildlife professionals. We are dedicated to conservation of wildlife and our natural resources and support the goals and mission of The Wildlife Society. We encourage students to participate in our sponsored service events, attend meetings, assist in identifying interesting speakers, activities, and beneficial opportunities such as internships. Volunteer opportunities with organizations such as Texas Parks and Wildlife and local sanctuaries, as well as social gatherings are held throughout the year. These events and opportunities help students gain experience in their field of interest while making friends and encouraging the next big step in their careers.

The Wildlife Society Mission Statement:
