Fish and Wildlife TWS Student Chapter Events
The UNBC Fish and Wildlife Student Chapter of the Wildlife Society is for anyone with fish and wildlife interests, not just students in the Wildlife and Fisheries major or the Biology major. It is a way to get to know people with similar interests. Our Student Chapter usually conducts one event per month during the academic year, including featured speakers, outdoor activities, and other Chapter functions. The UNBC TWS Trip Policy, approved by the Executive on 2 March 2009, applies to all Student Chapter sponsored trips.
The 11th annual photo contest will be held on October 18th and 19th. Photos for the event will be accepted during the week of October 15th. There will again be prizes for the 'Peoples' Choice' as well as the judged photos in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. Top photos become part of the Student Chapter's 2019 calendar, which will be available in early November!

Between September 14th -15th seventeen UNBC Fisheries and Wildlife Student Chapter members visited the Mugaha bird-banding station near Mackenzie BC. Students had an opportunity to learn the process of banding, from weighing, measuring size, measuring body fat, how to put on the bird tags on the legs, and how to handle and release birds. It also gave a great opportunity to learn how to identify native songbird species.
