Just as city police officers protect people…fish and game wardens protect wildlife. In some states, they’re called Conservation Officers. They enforce laws and regulations designed to conserve fish and animal populations. They patrol their assigned areas by car, boat, airplane, horse or on foot. As officers of the law, Fish and Game Wardens, or Conservation Officers, carry weapons and are trained by the local, state or federal agency that employs them. They issue hunting licenses and help to make the hunting season as safe and humane as possible. As a Conservation Officer, you might spend your days collecting information on the condition of wildlife in a park, or maybe, conducting inspections or rescues. Applicants should have an interest in science and math, and perhaps have had a related hobby such as fishing, bird watching or hunting, and be in excellent physical condition. It’s the perfect job for someone who loves being outdoors.
