ABOUT THE MIDWEST FISH & WILDLIFE CONFERENCE

Final Conference Report new

2007 will mark the 68th year that that natural resource professionals have met to share new research information, management experiences, and valuable insights of fish and wildlife research and management.

The Conference theme is “Be The Change: Manage Locally, Conserve Globally”. What we do locally on our individual fish and wildlife properties or on private lands in our own states can and will have an effect on Midwest regional fish and wildlife populations and their habitat. We are inviting attendees to explore ways to put their individual management actions into a larger context to benefit all fish and wildlife across the Midwest.

68th MIDWEST FISH & WILDLIFE CONFERENCE

Madison, Wisconsin

BE THE CHANGE
Manage Locally Conserve Globally™

Monona Terrace site of the 2007 Midwest Fish and Wildlife Conference We invite you to the 68th Midwest Fish and Wildlife Conference in Madison, Wisconsin, December 9-12, 2007. The conference will mark the 68th year that natural resource professionals have met to share new research information, management experiences, and valuable insights of fish and wildlife research and management.

The Conference will be held in the beautiful Frank Lloyd Wright designed Monona Terrace Convention Center on the shore of Lake Monona just blocks from the State Capitol, the University of Wisconsin campus, and downtown dining and night life.

The Conference theme is “Be The Change: Manage Locally, Conserve Globally”.

Mahatma Gandhi’s “You must be the change you want to see in the world” was a call for local, individual action to make a difference. Likewise, Rene Dubos challenged participants in the 1972 United Nations Conference on the Human Environment to “Think Globally, Act Locally” suggesting that ecological consciousness begins at home.

We wanted to issue a similar challenge to fisheries and wildlife professionals at this conference. Thus the blending of these two ideas, the emphasis on local, individual action, and the imperative of putting local management efforts into a global perspective. What we do locally on our individual fish and wildlife properties or on private lands in our own states can and will have an effect on Midwest regional fish and wildlife populations and their habitat.

We are inviting attendees to explore ways to put their individual management actions into a larger context to benefit all fish and wildlife across the Midwest.

ANNOUNCEMENTS

photo coutesy of sports.espn.go.com CONFERENCE IS STUDENT-FRIENDLY

The conference in Madison will afford both graduate and undergraduate students a lot of opportunities. As emerging wildlife and fisheries biologists you’ll hear about current Midwest research findings and emerging issues as well as making important professional contacts (i.e., schmoozing), but beyond that there are a number of opportunities designed specifically for students...

The Midwest Fish & Wildlife Conference planning committee is committed to setting an example for meeting attendees and other conference organizers by the way we conduct this event. Some things we’re doing to make this event more resource friendly:

  • No junk! No abstracts CD (they’ll be available online, and free wireless will be provided at the conference center), no meeting bag (we assume you have one), no t-shirt (it wouldn’t keep you warm enough, anyway), no giveaways of things that will clutter your life. Please see the Survival Guide so that you’re equipped for the meeting!
  • Locally produced food- as much as possible, we are pushing the Monona Terrace to buy food from responsible local producers; we think you’ll be surprised by and pleased with our menu! Smart buying and healthy food will be better for everyone, including our finned and furred friends, than a lame give/ throw-away.
  • Power for the conference will be provided from renewable sources.
  • Our meeting purchases are made with responsible manufacturing in mind first, price second. The secondary costs of cheap goods are an insidious onslaught on the resources we work hard to protect.

We hope you appreciate these efforts, and find this meeting as comfortable, warm, and exciting as the meetings you’ve come to expect from Wisconsin hosts.
Thanks

SWAG Swap
As part of its effort to make the Conference a less wasteful event, there will be no registration gift that will end up as clutter on its way to landfill.
The question is: How many tote bags, pens, and leather portfolios does a person need? You’ll have to be the judge of that, but if you find that you’ve got extras in your office, Do we have an idea for you!
