Enforcing Wildlife Laws

The Service’s special agents and wildlife inspectors in 21 field offices in the Northeast Region enforce federal wildlife laws and international treaty obligations that protect threatened and endangered species, migratory birds, and certain marine mammals.

Agents investigate wildlife-related crimes. Wildlife inspectors work at airports, seaports, border ports, and international passenger and mail facilities such as Baltimore, Boston, and Newark/New York. Inspectors check shipments of wildlife and wildlife products, looking at documents and permits to ensure that protected species are transported legally.
