Conservation / Fisheries Officer

Have You Considered Being a Conservation or Fisheries Officer?

Conservation and fisheries officers work to protect fish, wildlife and other natural resources. They also collect and relay information on resource management. If you like working outdoors and are interested in doing meaningful work to help protect the environment, this might be a career choice that interests you.

Completion of a two-year college technology diploma program is typical for people who work in this field. Many Colleges throughout BC offer those programs. Admission requirements usually include graduation from grade 12, with English 12, mathematics 12, a senior level biology course, and chemistry 11.

Of course, all of those courses will help you pursue a range of job selections, so it is most useful to stay enrolled in those courses just in case you decide to become a conservation officer or enter into another related field.
