The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) Enforcement Division is announcing the first completion of their new internship program by two college students.

Brittany Stroh from South Louisiana Community College and Erica Bonvillain from Nicholls State University are the first two students to complete the LDWF Enforcement Division’s internship program. They had to give a final presentation on May 4 at the LDWF HQ building in Baton Rouge to receive college credit from their universities.

The LDWF Enforcement Division started their internship program this spring semester with the goal of providing college students relevant experience in conservation law enforcement and potentially a career as an LDWF Enforcement Agent.

The internship program lasts 90 to 130 hours and consists of shadowing LDWF agents in the field such as during patrols, training and outreach programs that will help them acquire a broad knowledge of LDWF Enforcement Agent activities.

College and University Internship Coordinators and Faculty that are interested in offering the LDWF Enforcement Division Internship at their college or university can contact LDWF Internship Coordinator Corporal Anthony Corner at acorner@wlf.la.gov.
