An AWMS conference typically attracts 200 delegates from the Australasian region, with members from Australia, New Zealand, and around the world, all of whom have an interest in the wildlife management field.  AWMS promotes the use of science to identify appropriate wildlife management principles and practices, develop plans of management, and to implement and review these plans within a social, environmental, economic and political context.  AWMS members include research scientists, educators, wildlife managers, and extension, interpretation and policy professionals.
