Wildlife Society Annual Conference - 2009

Join us for The Wildlife Society's 16th Annual Conference taking place September 20-24 in Monterey, California. On opening day at the Plenary session, a panel will discuss "The Use and Abuse of Science in Fish and Wildlife Policy Decisions," a topic that spotlights one of the most significant challenges facing wildlife professionals today. That evening, attendees are invited to enjoy the Opening Reception/Dinner at the acclaimed Monterey Bay Aquarium.
The conference will feature more than 200 concurrent paper presentations as well as posters sessions, half-day and full-day workshops, related field trips, and multiple networking opportunities for wildlife professionals at all career stages. On Monday, September 21, attendees can explore new career possibilities at the Career Fair in the Exhibit Hall from 8 a.m. to noon, then attend the Student-Professional Mixer and Dinner that evening.
