Wildlife Education Service (WES)

We share space, land, water, air with many species on this part of the earth called Kansas. The stewardship and wise use of our natural resources is everyone's responsibility. As part of continuing commitment to this responsibility, the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism created the Wildlife Education Service ( WES) in 1981. The WES utilizes field staff, educational programs, and resources to enhance the knowledge, understanding and appreciation of Kansas' natural resources, especially wildlife.
