You are invited to join fellow wildlife researchers, managers, educators, students, and administrators from across Alaska for the Annual Meeting of the Alaska Chapter of The Wildlife Society. Please consider submitting an abstract for a poster presentation, an oral presentation, or a 5-minute Spark Talk. Abstracts should focus on wildlife ecology, management, conservation, education, or policy.

New this year: The Spark session is a fast-paced session featuring 5 minute presentations from multiple speakers for a unique way of connecting ideas, engaging the audience, and provoking elicit discussion about anything and everything we’re passionate about in the wildlife profession. For questions contact

Presentations from completed studies or significant results from ongoing work will be given highest priority. Acceptance of presentations of work in progress will depend on abstract quality and program space. Presentations and posters will be accepted based on technical merit and contribution to our knowledge of species, populations, communities, ecological processes, management practices, conservation initiatives, education models, or policy issues. However, meeting time and space is a limiting factor and we may not be able to accept all submissions.

An e-mail will be sent confirming that your abstract was received and saved. Please contact if you have any questions regarding online submissions.

Deadline for abstract submission: Midnight, January 8.
