Wildlife Protection: An Introduction
In North America, the wildlife conservation or wildlife protection efforts unofficially began in the turn of the 20th century. A lot of states in America and some provinces in Canada started to pass legislation bills that will protect different kinds of wildlife in their own territory during the year 1900. The bills that were passed were the product of the unregulated hunting and killing of animals in the wild that resulted to rapid decrease in their species population while leaving some species extinct. Humans and their increasing population requires new areas for residential purposes and that is also one of the reason for the decline of some of the population of some species of wildlife.
Now, those governments did not only pass legislations that will protect the wildlife but also did the necessary action of hiring people that would strongly implement these laws. The elk, pronghorn, antelope, bighorn sheep, whitetail deer and many more are only some of the animals that were saved from extinction and because of the efforts of the people who implement these rules, the population of these animals are now far from being extinct. If not for the strict implementation by the officers in charge of these wildlife protection laws for more than 100 years now, then those animal species would only be seen in books.
Approximately, there is about eight thousand wildlife protection officers employed by the United States of America and the country of Canada. Wildlife protection police officers can be labelled as game warden, conservation officer, wildlife officer and many more and that only depends on the country or state that you are in, nevertheless, the work of these people is to protect the wildlife and strongly implement the laws within their area of operation or jurisdiction.
A Quick History of Organizations
Wildlife protection police officers have undergo training the same as a normal police officer goes through and they also have been trained in their own state or provincial law enforcement training center which really gives him or her the label of being a legitimate police officer, which a lot of people tend to disregard. It may not appear to the citizens but wildlife protection police officers also experience the same risks that the conventional police officers go through and also the survival and protection of the wildlife is their key priority while not compromising the safety of the public.
Learning The “Secrets” of Companies
The credit really goes to the men and women who are compassionate enough for the environment and the wildlife but are very strict when it comes to implementing the rules, because if not for them, who knows what species of wildlife are going to live so see the next 10 years or even to live just to see today?
