          The Wildlife Society at Texas Tech

          The goal of The Wildlife Society at Texas Tech is to provide educational and experiential wildlife-research and management opportunities to students to promote professional development and develop skills that will be used for science-based wildlife management. The Wildlife Society at Texas Tech, formerly known as the Range, Wildlife, and Fisheries club, was established in 1978 to promote professional relationships, career opportunities, and to aid Texas Tech students the opportunity to succeed in the wildlife field. Members who participate in TTU-TWS events understand the importance of hard work, dedication, hands-on experience, and most importantly, professionalism and a sense of community.

          About TTUTWS

          Our revitalized program now has more than fifty active members, with an average of sixty-five students that attend bi-monthly meetings. Our society’s success is defined by the achievements of alumni after graduation, and by professional engagement of current students.

          Our Members

          Beyond professional training, we stress and emphasize the development of personal and professional friendships among our members. The relationships that develop through our society will continue to have a lasting impact on their lives and our discipline.


          We coordinate and provide volunteer opportunities such as deer captures, lesser prairie-chicken and purple martin captures, and other hands-on opportunities. Our chapter also attends the annual Texas Chapter of The Wildlife Society meeting.
