Washington DNR gets a lot of shiat, but they do good work.

I got a very nice response from Washington DNR when a tiny little owl suicided on my kitchen window.   I sent them a picture of the bird, and got back a great response from one of their biologists about the bird (Pygmy Owl) and things I could do to help future birds not smash their little noggins on my house.   Which I did.

I also had a lot of interaction with them when I was running a reefing organization with the goal of sinking an aircraft carrier as a reef ship.   Generally the state was opposed to it, and after discussion with their biologists, discovered that it wasn't faceless bureaucrats, but a gap in knowledge about the effects of that much iron breaking down in an estuary system like Puget Sound.    And gosh, that makes sense.    We started working on that research, and then I got divorced, and that was the end of most of damn near everything for a while.

Anyway, you should listen to your state wildlife agencies, folks.   It may not seem like it at the top, but down at the bottom where the work gets done, it's usually being done by competent people.

How it is with most service agencies, the people in the trenches do the job as well as they can with random people yelling at 'em for getting in the way/doing 'stupid shiat' that actually needs doing - with gods know who running the agency this year thanks to politics and such.  As universally annoying as safety and health inspectors are, anyone care to just do without them - having seen the reports they put out on places?  Imagine how those places would be if they didn't have to worry about inspectors at all

Beats me.   If you want to see some deranged people, check in after DNR or Fish and Wildlife makes some change to the fisheries rules.    People act like they're just making the rules up out of whole cloth to deny them their special spot on the river, rather than managing a finite resource between commercial, tribal, and recreational interests.  I love to fish (not so much at actually catching 'em) but it seems self evident to me that if you don't manage the fisheries, you won't have any fish, and no one wins.  Sometimes I wonder if I'm the only guy with a line in  the water that gets that.

Washington Fish and Wildlife also does a great job.

Thanks!  Do this - Hang some bright sparkle things in east and west facing windows.  That will help the birds.

The usual.  They want management of resources all right - for other people.  Same folks that demand more drunk driving enforcement and throw a fit and lose their mind (and their license) when they blow a .25 on the way back from the bar.  No, those other people, not me!

I've worked with state, federal (mostly NOAA and FWS), a couple international wildlife agencies. All from the science POV. These people don't do it for the money (not much) or the power (less than not much). They believe in their work and, like Rent Party said, they're good at it. Almost universally a great bunch to work with, because scientists. And drink with, also because scientists.

I grew up in Enumclaw, as did a couple other farkers here.   One of 'em commented just the other day how strange it is how many Farkers that tiny little cow town has produced.

I have a few friends that work for state agencies. Most people there are good and really care about what they do. You don't go into a public sector job for the high salary.

Wisconsin DNR is the same way. We are a big outdoor recreation state so they spearhead a lot of different things. They even run the gun safety courses needed to get a hunting license instead of the NRA running them. New hunters get indoctrinated in how to be a safe and ethical hunter instead of "whoop, whoop, 2nd Amendment!!". They also work closely with local humane societies and wildlife rehabbers when critters get into trouble.

Wanker Walker tried to dismantle it so he could sell off state land but it didn't go very far. We may be a purple state but both red and blue people like our reputation for having great outdoor activities for all and want to keep us that way.
