Youth Working on National Wildlife Refuges
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is a fun, rewarding and fascinating place to work. There are careers working on the land, protecting wildlife, building and maintaining facilities, reaching out to visitors, creating environmental education programs and so much more. There are jobs in urban and rural areas, on desert or tundra, islands or wilderness. There are summer and year-round opportunities. Approximately 20 percent of employees in the National Wildlife Refuge System are expected to retire within five years and nearly 45 percent within 10 years. NOW is the time to get involved.
