Officer Wright with local students discussing wildlife conservation and identification


Adam Wright

Duty Station:  

Guadalupe Mountains

Special Area of Responsibility/Game Mgmt Units:  

30 and 31


BS in Wildlife and Fisheries from Mississippi State University

Length of Service:  

Three years

Specialty or Interest:

Wildlife Management and getting young people involved with hunting and fishing or just the outdoors.

Current Projects/Assignments:  

I have been working with the BLM making modifications to net wire fencing. This hopefully will facilitate better antelope movement in the area. I have also been conducting residency investigations and angler patrol.  

Best Thing About the Job:  

There are lots of good things about being a Game Warden, but the diversity of the job would have to be the best. One day I may be flying antelope surveys and the next be making an arrest on someone with a warrant.

Most Common Question People Have:  

Why are the fish dying in Brantley Lake?


Golden Algae
