Agency of my choice:
The agency I would work for would be Texas Wildlife Services. Their mission statement is:
"The mission of the Animal Plant Health Inspection Service, Wildlife Services (WS) is to provide Federal leadership in managing conflicts with wildlife. WS recognizes that wildlife is an important public resource greatly valued by the American people. By its very nature, however, wildlife is a highly dynamic and mobile resource that can cause damage to agriculture and property, pose risks to human health and safety, and affect natural resources. WS conducts programs of research, technical assistance, and applied management to resolve problems that occur when human activity and wildlife conflict with one another."
What is it and how is it important?
The Texas Wildlife Services Program provides statewide leadership in the science, education and practice of wildlife management to protect the state’s agricultural, industrial and natural resources, as well as the public’s health, safety and property.
Wildlife is important to the economy and to the aesthetics and health of our environment; yet, some wildlife do at times cause problems that must be delt with in a professional manner. The Texas Wildlife Services help protect the native plants and animals of Texas, and help defend our state from invasive species. Texas Wildlife Services accomplishes this through a cooperation with federal, state, and private entities, servicing both rural and urban areas, utilizing technical assistance and direct control services in this specilized field of wildlife management.
