Qualifications for a Federal Wildlife Officer
The National Wildlife Refuge System Division of Refuge Law Enforcement is responsible for the physical security and emergency management on U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service lands. To become a Federal Wildlife Officer, you must like working outdoors in all kinds of weather! You also must enjoy working with people, because most of your job will consist of contacting and interacting with refuge visitors, neighbors, and other employees.
If you have an interest in becoming a Federal Wildlife Officer, we suggest that you visit your nearby National Wildlife Refuge and talk to the staff or an officer.
