In response to a growing need for a body committed to wildlife management in Australia and New Zealand, the Australasian Wildlife Management Society (AWMS) was established in May, 1988 (view constitution) when it held its first conference in Canberra. AWMS actively encourages the development, dissemination and adoption of applied scientific research in wildlife management.
AWMS is a professional society that promotes the study and application of scientific wildlife management in the Australasian region, with members from Australia, New Zealand, and around the world. Members come from all sectors of wildlife management and a wide range of institutions and private organisations and include wildlife research scientists, wildlife managers, wildlife practitioners, policy developers, educators and students.
AWMS aims to influence policy and management decisions through the provision of clear, explicit and pragmatic advice on options for wildlife management and associated risks.
This year the AWMS is holding their annual conference online. For details and registration, head to the link below.
