Eco-Enforcement

PEER’s Involvement in Eco-Enforcement

PEER works to support the enforcement of environmental and natural resource laws at the federal, state and local levels. The need for protection for our natural resources and public health has never been greater. Even as the need for strong environmental and natural resource protection is growing, enforcement programs are facing declining budgets, lower staffing levels, and dispirited morale.

Forest, Parks, and Lands Enforcement

PEER is dedicated to serving law enforcement rangers, agents and other professionals working in our forests, ranges and parklands.

Pollution Enforcement

PEER monitors federal, state and local governments to make sure they hold polluters accountable and protect public health and the environment.
