Over 150 Species Sustained in 82 Years

Oregon State University's Department of Fisheries and Wildlife was established in 1935 as The Department of Fish, Game, and Fur Animal Management at Oregon Agricultural College. Through the years the department has flourished, but the mission remains the same: conservation of natural resources. 

We have accumulated photos, facts, and the names of the researchers behind these accomplishments to share with you. See for yourself the legacy we are committed to preserving for generations to come.

Supporting Research and Education in Our Department

Our department is growing every year! From bright and promising new faculty to eager and ambitious undergrads - not to mention everyone in between! The Department of Fisheries and Wildlife at Oregon State University provides comprehensive research, education, and outreach programs related to conservation biology and the management of fish and wildlife resources. Our goal is to provide people with the knowledge needed to make wise decisions on issues of conservation, sustainable use, and ecosystem restoration. We accomplish this through a combination of undergraduate and graduate education, scholarly research, extension education, and public outreach.

In addition to scholarships, donations from our family and friends help fund field courses, Fish and Wildlife Club activities, professional development opportunities for staff, alumni, and staff events at society meetings, and many other important department activities.
