Career of the Week: Wildlife Warden

Do you enjoy being outdoors? Are you interested in nature conservation? Love to hunt, fish, or both? If so, consider becoming a wildlife warden!


Wildlife wardens monitor wildlife populations and ensure that hunters and fishers have proper licensing and follow all state rules and regulations as they apply to recreational use. Wildlife wardens typically work for state or federal governments. This field is expected to grow by 7% in the next two years and most entry level positions require a Bachelor's Degree in Parks and Recreation, some experience, and agency training as well.
