A national Native American non-profit organization, the Native American Fish & Wildlife Society, serves as a communication medium for self-determined Native American fish and wildlife managers.

We serve as a communication network between tribal, federal, and state fish and wildlife management entities.

USFWS Native American Conservation Law Enforcement Training Agenda  

By: Conservation Officer A.Martinez

What is a Conservation Law Enforcement Officer to you? Many of us work in the back country of our reservations. Protecting the wildlife, fish and our land. Could you consider the job an ethical warrior/ protector?  It can mean many things to many people. In the field work of Law Enforcement it is our duty to protect  and serve.  Protect those against harm and evil and serve with integrity, honor and humility. How will my decisions effect others?
