Wildlife Management

Wild life Management is very important for having a great natural envornment. To help with this is the Department of Natural Resources. They are a fedral group that helps restore and precerve the envornment. They do that in many different ways but some include, planting trees, hunting and fishing regulations, orv and snowmobile licences so that they can maintain those trails and help with adding wildlife. A conservation officer is there to make sure everyone is folling the rules.

This graph shows the population of deer, the darker the color the more deer per square mile, the lighter the color the less deer per square mile. The DNR are trying to precerve and regain the areas were the deer are less populated. This goes for all wildlife.

What it takes to be a DNR officerConservation officer using computer in patrol vehicleThe primary duty of a conservation officer (CO) is to enforce natural resource, recreational safety and environmental protection laws. It's a demanding, sometimes dangerous, but extremely rewarding career.CO duties vary from season to season and include observing and checking hunters and anglers, enforcing snowmobiling, off-road vehicle and watercraft regulations; enforcing laws that protect the environment; outdoor recreation safety education; writing criminal case briefs and giving court testimony. They work varied shifts, often outdoors in inclement weather. Because they enforce hunting regulations, COs often deal with those possessing firearms. As peace officers, on occasion they make physical arrests of criminals who may be intoxicated and/or disorderly.Conservation officers in boatTo get a better idea of what COs do on a given day, browse their bi-weekly activity reports or read this article that offers a snapshot of a day on the job with a conservation officer.COs occupy various positions and levels throughout the Department of Natural Resources (DNR). Promotional opportunities include specialist and supervisor positions. Specialist programs include detective, commercial fish, recreational safety, and training and employment positions. Opportunities as a supervisor range from first-line CO supervisors to top-level DNR management.Conservation officer in firearm trainingTraining: Conservation officers hired by the DNR undergo extensive recruit training. Due to the focus on natural-resource and environmental protection, and the variety of issued equipment, COs are among the most highly trained and well-equipped law enforcement officers in the nation. The training program includes subjects like:criminal law,interview and interrogation techniques,firearms tactics and safety,survival tactics,field trauma and first aid,waterfowl identification and enforcement,fish and game identification and enforcement,snowmobile operation,off-road vehicle operation,basic and advanced marine enforcement and vessel operations,tactical tracking,trapping enforcement,precision driving,anddigital photography.Field Assignments: COs in the field are assigned to one of Michigan's 83 counties as their primary work location, depending on DNR operational needs. Following successful completion of a Michigan Commission on Law Enforcement Standards (MCOLES) regional police academy and probationary training program, recruit COs will receive their first assignment. COs may request transfers to other vacant work locations after completing their one-year probationary period.Education Requirements: A high-school diploma or GED is required to become a conservation officer. Although a college degree is not required at this time, college experience may enhance employment opportunities. Recommended courses include natural-resource sciences, criminal justice, sociology and all types of communication arts. Military experience can result in additional civil-service test points that may be beneficial.

Dear,Barack ObamaI am addressing you over an issue that I believe needs to be looked at more in America and all around the world. The issue is Wildlife Managment. Wildlife Managment is important in procerving and regaining Americas natural beauties.There are many different ways people look at wildlife. I believe that to have all the natural beauty that America has we have to protect it better. What destroys are wildlife population could be as simple as building a resteruant or a hotel. At the Grand Canyon they want to put up a resteraunt and a hotel and you wouln't think this would or could do any harm but it can. Around the Grand Canyon there is a serious water shortage and the elk need water and if you put a hotel up they need water which drives the elk herd out of that area in search of water.There are many different ways you could help restore the wildlife population and living conditions for the animals. One idea would be to create food plots for the animals to come and eat without having to search really hard for it. ANother would be to hire more people to help protect the animals for pochers or illegal kills. We also need to create more natural parks because the animals can be in a safe envorment without having to interact with people on a day to day basis.Thanks for listening to my ideas I hope that The animals are a top priority when it comes to Prcerving the earth.

Scarcity- We don't want food or water ever to be in short supply for the animals, thats why we need to help them and protect them or they might be in short supply as well.Opportunity Cost- If we as humans build a house in the woods the animals that lived there before us lost theirs.Consumption- We need to protcet the forests because they are beautiful and we need to see the natural beuatie in things.Production- Trying to precerve the envornment will cause jobs for DNR officers, People planting food plots, and naurals forest areas including state parks.Interdependence- The animals are dependent on the forests and there habitat for survival and if we take the forests from them then they don't have anywhere to go.

The animals that inhabit our national parks capture our curiosity and our hearts. The opportunity to see these animals in their natural setting has become a major attraction to parks such as Yellowstone, Yosemite, and Everglades.Our national parks provide some of the best, and sadly some of the last, remaining habitats for countless species. In fact, one-third of endangered and threatened species in our nation can be found within park boundaries.But many of our national parks are being impacted by nearby development, pollution, recreational uses, and other human activities. Our parks and our wildlife are in jeopardy. Take a closer look at the animals of the parks, the threats they face, and how we can work together to protect them.
