Environmental Law Enforcement in Georgia

Wildlife conservation is an extremely complex matter. Not only must the different species be managed but also their habitat. Any factor that impacts the habitat is of concern to the wildlife manager. Man's activities are key factors in the destruction and loss of habitat. The bulldozing of habitat to make way for new buildings and factories creates by-products that endanger not only wildlife and their habitats but also people. These by-products are wastes and other pollutants. As a component of natural resources management, the Law Enforcement Section of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources must concern itself with violations of environmental laws.
