Sponsorship Opportunities

We hope you will consider sponsoring the 2021 Annual Meeting of the Western Section of The Wildlife Society

Sponsors are key partners for TWS-WS and we greatly appreciate your support.  Your sponsorship helps us reduce meeting registration fees for our attendees plus you also help fund subsidies for students and early career professionals.  We thank you in advance for your consideration, and support of wildlife stewardship!
