Wildlife Conservation Officer Careers

Individuals who are interested in a law enforcement career should consider the field of natural resources where exciting opportunities await them as Wildlife Conservation Officers.  Once known as Game Wardens, wildlife conservation professionals dedicate their lives to enforcing the laws that protect our natural resources and regulate outdoor recreation.

Before pursuing this career path, candidates should consider both the attraction of working outdoors as well as the inherent dangers of this profession.  If you have the ability to rise to such demands and fit into a paramilitary lifestyle, then you may have what it takes to become a Pennsylvania Wildlife Conservation Officer. The following information and video is provided to assist you in deciding if you have what it takes to succeed in this demanding, but extremely gratifying career.

We do not anticipate opening the Wildlife Conservation Officer exam for a few years. When the exam is open, information will be available on the Game Commission's website and on the Civil Service Commission website at www.scsc.state.pa.us
