The National Association of University Fisheries and Wildlife Programs
(NAUFWP) was formed in 1991 from a previous group with similar
membership, the Association of University Fisheries and Wildlife
Program Administrators (AUFWPA). NAUFWP represents approximately 44
university programs and their 440 faculty members, scientists, and
extension specialists and over 9,200 undergraduates and graduate
students working to enhance the science and management of fisheries and
NAUFWP is a faculty developed and supported organization formed to:
||Increase public understanding of fisheries and wildlife management and
||Strengthen fisheries and wildlife education, research, extension, and
international programs at the university level.
||Advance fisheries and wildlife science and management.
NAUFWP represents member institutions in their collective dealings with
government entities, natural resources organizations, commodity and
industry groups, educational and scientific organizations, and the public.
