How Do I Become A Federal Wildlife Officer?
Federal Wildlife Officers are commissioned law enforcement officers. You must enjoy working with people, because most of your job will consist of contacting and interacting with refuge visitors, neighbors, and other employees.
We stand ready to protect our visitors and natural resources 24 hours a day/ 7 days a week. Our job is very rewarding, but can be extremely challenging. We frequently work alone in remote locations. We work long hours in arduous terrain at times. FWO’s have a tremendous responsibility and must be highly motivated independent workers. From urban refuges to remote hunting and fishing camps, a high degree of professionalism is required to work with a diverse population.
