The Urban Wildlife Working Group was officially recognized in March 1999 as a working group of The Wildlife Society. As professional urban wildlife researchers and managers, we engaged with our respective local wildlife management agencies and research institutes focused on critical urban wildlife issues. As working group members, we also exchange of information among the broader membership of The Wildlife Society, interested in urban wildlife management, to enhance knowledge and technical capabilities of wildlife professionals in the area of urban wildlife management.

The goal of the meeting is to bring together wildlife scientists, wildlife managers, land use planners, educators, and others who are interested in and concerned about urban wildlife to share the latest science, conservation efforts, and management challenges from a diverse range of urban settings. Wildlife species in urban areas present unique and significant conservation challenges, sometimes vexing human conflict and management issues, and incredible opportunities for outreach and education about wildlife to large audiences. The scientific study of urban wildlife is a fascinating and still relatively young, but fast-growing field.
