Biology - Area 7: Conservation Enforcement BS

Conservation Enforcement

Policing is an important function in society, especially where rare and endangered plants and animals are involved. As an officer, you must have a basic knowledge of the classification of plants and animals and a sound knowledge of the relevant legislation, investigative methods, and court procedures.

The University of Central Missouri's Conservation Enforcement studies provides you with the essential education to manage, conserve, and protect fish and wildlife, and the land and water environments on which we co-depend. Such tasks demand people broadly trained in science, ecology, and public policy, but also sensitive to political issues and social values. Our Conservation Enforcement program is an ideal place to gain the knowledge, experience, and insight you will need.

Get Involved!

Chances are, the organization you choose to participate in will include a diverse group of people — you’ll be faced with the same situation in the working world! Learning how different people respond and react to certain situations will help you develop your skills in presenting and implementing ideas.

Learn How to Work with a Team!

Knowing how to work well with a team is an essential skill for any career. Being in a student organization teaches you how to do this by putting you in situations where you are required to take advice from others, as well as give your own. You have several opportunities to become an active member or leader of one of our biology organizations.
