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.
