A national Native American non-profit organization, the Native American Fish & Wildlife Society, serves as a communication medium for self-determined Native American fish and wildlife managers.

We serve as a communication network between tribal, federal, and state fish and wildlife management entities.

YOUTH

&

PRE-PROFESSIONALS 

 

We re-vamped our youth section. We hope to have greater outreach and engagement as well as have the website be more accessible and easy to navigate. The NAFWS will post opportunities and scholarships directly related to NAFWS but also provide external opportunities for youth (high school) and pre-professionals (undergraduates, graduates, post-docs, etc.).
