AWMS is a professional society that promotes the study and application of scientific wildlife management in the Australasian region.

In response to a growing need for a body committed to wildlife management in Australia and New Zealand, the Australasian Wildlife Management Society (AWMS) was established in May, 1988 when it held its first conference in Canberra. The Society has members from all regions of Australia, New Zealand and from other countries. Members come from all sectors of wildlife management and a wide range of institutions and private organizations

AWMS actively encourages the development, dissemination and adoption of applied scientific research in wildlife management. Target groups include wildlife research scientists, wildlife managers, wildlife practitioners, policy developers, educators and students.
AWMS aims to influence policy and management decisions through the provision of clear, explicit and pragmatic advice on options for wildlife management and associated risk
