 The primary purpose of National Wildlife Refuges is protecting and managing habitat, wildlife, and other natural resources. Federal Federal law enforcement officers ensure the safety of the public and the protection of natural resources. They address illegal activities, including poaching, taking of endangered species, dumping of trash, illegal operation of all terrain vehicles, trespassing and more.

The presence of federal law enforcement officers helps provide an added measure of safety and security for the visiting public and wildlife.
