Our mission and values
The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife's mission is to preserve and protect fish, wildlife and ecosystems, while providing sustainable hunting and fishing opportunities for commercial interests and millions of residents. We perform these services on behalf of the public in ways that demonstrate our values:
WDFW offers a diverse range of job opportunities, whether you're a biologist, law enforcement officer, administrator, recent graduate, or if you just share our passion for Washington's wildlife. We operate six regional offices and numerous other facilities around the state, which means there's a place for you no matter where you live in Washington.
If you don’t see a position you're currently interested in, be sure to sign up for job alerts to be notified of new positions that become available in our agency. To learn more about becoming a Fish and Wildlife Enforcement officer, visit our enforcement jobs section of the website.
Applicants with disabilities who require assistance with the application and employment process will be accommodated to the extent reasonably possible. Requests should be made to the Human Resources Office by calling 360-902-2276. Persons who are deaf or hard of hearing may dial 711 to place a call through Washington Relay, the state's free telecommunication access service.
