The Wildlife Society at Berkeley is looking for founding members!

Being part of the group of founders of the Wildlife Society is a great leadership and networking opportunity for those of you who want to work with the environment and are particularly interested in wildlife, as we will be partnering with the San Francisco Bay Area Wildlife Society (sfbws.com). We will be learning about the fields of wildlife biology and research, wildlife conservation, wildlife education, among many others. We will also be planning field trips to local lakes, go hiking/birdwatching, and even go on regular camping trips to enjoy the wilderness, all while getting involved with wildlife conservation!

Rabbits help lower cholesterol. Cats may lead to a breakthrough in the AIDS epidemic. And dogs have taught doctors new heart surgery techniques. Even lobsters help scientists understand Parkinson's disease. Since the turn of the century, animal research has helped wipe out such diseases as smallpox and polio while increasing the human lifespan by 28 years. Whether it's fighting epilepsy, finding a cure for Alzheimer's or making progress in brain and spinal cord trauma, the link between human health and animal health is absolutely crucial.

The University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine provides an outstanding environment for the training of future veterinary scientists through our combined VMD-PhD program. It's an excellent way for you to continue your education while impacting the future of medicine ­ for humans and all species.
