Learning about our natural world never ends. Wildlife continue to fascinate many professionals and non-professionals alike. Below are presentations by wildlife professionals and aspiring students about projects and ongoing work in the state.  These presentations are a part of the 2021 Arkansas Chapter virtual conference and annual meeting.

The Arkansas Chapter of The Wildlife Society is affiliated with the national The Wildlife Society which offers different levels of certification and continuing education credit for professionals who have at least a bachelor degree in a wildlife-related field. Wildlife professionals wishing to receive continuing education credit can email the The Wildlife Society in advance of the event to determine the number of credits awarded. Be sure to attach a program or other documentation to your email request.

In 2021, the Arkansas Chapter offers members an opportunity to gain continuing education credit by attending the live virtual conference and annual meeting on March 11. Pre-register at this link: 

If you are not a current member of the Arkansas Chapter, wildlife professionals need to pay $10 annual dues prior to the conference to defray expenses. Even though this is a virtual event, there are some expenses associated with this meeting. As they say, nothing in life is free, but in this case, unless you are a student! Student membership in the Arkansas Chapter is free. For all others, contact the Arkansas Chapter's Secretary/Treasurer and pay your dues! (please!)
