DNR Rangers may not use that “always get their man” slogan, but they not only nab lawbreakers, they get their fish and ducks too.
Our Rangers protect our natural resources and those of us who enjoy them, but the job is more than looking svelte in their extraordinarily cool hats.
The latest Law Enforcement Report proves that Rangers are enforcing the law:
- Illegal gill nets and fish were confiscated on Lake Walter F. George – Clay County
- 29 ring-necked ducks confiscated – Lowndes County
- Violation citations – several counties
Rangers never ring the necks of ducknappers — they just bring them to justice.
The Law Enforcement Section of Wildlife Resources Division protects Georgia’s wildlife populations by enforcing laws, rules and regulations pertaining to game and nongame animals, threatened and endangered plants and animals, exotic animals, boating safety, litter and waste control, and other natural resource issues.
In addition, conservation rangers:
- administer the state’s hunter education and boating safety programs;
- investigate violations of wildlife laws as well as hunting and boating incidents; and
- conduct classes and programs to educate citizens about wildlife laws and safety practices.
