Welcome to the 87th North American Wildlife and Natural Resources Conference. It is so nice to be able to see each other in person and not over a computer screen. I am sure that you, like me, missed reconnecting with your friends and colleagues during the last two years. We are happy that we can provide that opportunity, and also serve those who may not be able to make the conference by providing a virtual component. My sincere thanks to Matt Dunfee, the conference organizer, as well as Cindy Delaney and her talented team for assisting us in this conference. I also thank all the state agency, federal agency, tribal members, non-governmental organizations, businesses, industries, and exhibitors for your participation and financial support to make this 87th conference successful.
