Formally established in 1993, and granted status as an international non-profit organization in 1995, The Organization of Fish and Wildlife Information Managers (OFWIM) is comprised of professionals representing state and federal agencies, local governments, academia, and private firms that share the mission of promoting the management and conservation of natural resources by facilitating technology and information exchange
among managers of fish and wildlife
information. We aim to bridge the gap between natural resource and technical disciplines through the promotion of interdisciplinary partnering, collaboration, sharing of ideas, and best management practices in order to effectively apply technology to the information and data needs of natural resource management.
OFWIM emphasizes coordination, outreach, technical assistance, and continuing education. Objectives within each of these focus areas are met through the production of OFWIM's:
Sponsorship of an Annual Meeting
Sponsorship of Regional Meetings
OFWIM Community Portal
Facilitation of Workshops and Training Sessions
Stay tuned for details of our 2024 conference and business meeting. Taking place from October 7th-10th at the Arcadia Academy in Arcadia, Missouri!
