Sponsorship Opportunities

We hope you will consider sponsoring the Annual Meeting of the Western Section of The Wildlife Society.

Sponsors help us reduce meeting registration fees for our attendees plus fund subsidies for students and early career professionals.  Sponsors also help us raise operating capital to promote sustainable management of wildlife resources.

Thank you for your consideration!
