We value wildlife as part of our heritage. Whether it is fishing, hunting, or wildlife viewing, wildlife provide many ecological, social, economic, intrinsic, and spiritual values to our society.
We value the use of science-based information in making decisions affecting wildlife.
We value engaging the community in our work. When we recruit community scientists in our work, they become connected with wildlife and science, thus giving them tools to be good stewards for wildlife and land conservation.
We value partnerships with diverse stakeholders who share our commitment to wildlife conservation, regardless of political affiliation. Wildlife benefit most when we work together and pool our resources.
We value a staff culture that is inclusive, honest, seeks the highest quality and integrity in our work, and minimizes our own impact on wildlife and the environment by conserving resources in our daily work. We value staff that create innovative solutions instead of only identifying problems.
We value the highest ethical and professional standards in all of our work and external relationships that are professional, transparent, and respectful.
