Law enforcement officers play an important role in keeping wildlife and people safe, particularly during hunting season.

Protecting wildlife, plants, habitats, and people

Federal Wildlife Officers work with other Federal, State and County law enforcement personnel to make the Ouray National Wildlife Refuge a better place for wildlife, wildlife habitat, and the visitors who come to experience the Refuge.

Certain regulations are necessary for the protection of wildlife and wildlife habitat as well as the safety of visitors. The Ouray National Wildlife Refuge is subject to Federal, State, and local laws and regulations. 

For emergencies, dial 911.  
To report a wildfire, call the Uintah Basin Interagency Fire Center at (435) 789-7021.
