Wildlife enforcement and legislation

Wildlife enforcement officers enforce Canadian wildlife legislation which protects plant and animal species in Canada including migratory birds. Canadian wildlife protection legislation is also aimed at conserving threatened or potentially threatened species nationally and internationally. These laws regulate human interventions, such as hunting or trade that could adversely affect long-term wildlife conservation. Wildlife enforcement officers enforce these laws throughout Canada in collaboration with other federal departments, and provincial, territorial governments and national and international agencies and organizations.
