Forest and Wildlife Ecology

Madison, Wisconsin - United States

The Department of Forest and Wildlife Ecology had its origin in 1933 when the University of Wisconsin-Madison created a Chair in Game Management for Professor Aldo Leopold. Six years later, Leopold formed the Department of Wildlife Management, the first academic department in the world dedicated to the emerging field of wildlife management. Forestry had its origins in 1913 with a two-year "forest ranger's course" to provide technicians to help with reforestation in northern Wisconsin. Forestry research was conducted in several college programs and in 1959, the Department of Forestry and Wildlife Management was created to organize forestry and wildlife research under one program.

The mission of the Department of Forest and Wildlife Ecology is to provide science-based research, instruction and outreach that supports forest and wildlife conservation and management in an ecologically, economically and socially sustainable fashion. The Department has a long history of providing solutions to forest and wildlife resource management problems. Research, instruction and outreach are vital to improving how we monitor and manage natural ecosystems to secure sustainable benefits for current and future generations.
