The mission of the Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Sciences is the discovery and communication of knowledge relevant to wildlife and fisheries resources issues. This mission is accomplished through an integrated teaching, research and extension program, comprised of:
- academic instruction and training for undergraduate and graduate students;
- scholarly research that advances scientific knowledge and emphasizes conservation and management of wildlife and fisheries resources; and,
- extension educational activities that are research-based and are designed to meet the needs of Texans and guided by the principle of “helping people to help themselves.”
Programs are focused on native vertebrates and their exotic counterparts, both in natural and man-made habitats. Long term goals include developing an understanding of the bio-physical and socioeconomic issues related to fish and wildlife resources, identifying associated opportunities and problems; then generating and applying adaptive management strategies to exploit opportunities and mitigate problems.
