Meeting Theme:

Our field and many other science based professions are experiencing a disconnect in public perception and policy and as a result we would like to start a conversation about the future of our profession and its relevancy in a rapidly changing society. Our theme will be "The Future of the Wildlife Profession." We would like to revisit the core of what we do as wildlife professionals and also explore emerging technologies and hurdles we see coming down the road and how we can meet them.
