Wildlife, Sustainability and Ecosystem Sciences

My name is Cody Rodgers and I am Senior in Wildlife Science at Tarleton State University. I am going into
my final semester as an undergrad, as a prepare to graduate in December. I was born and raised in the
Texas Hill Country with an adventurous spirit geared for the outdoors. I spent a majority of my boyhood
hunting, fishing and camping. I achieved the Eagle Scout Rank in the Boy Scouts of America at the age of
17. After I graduated high school in 2014, I began the course to achieve my degree at Tarleton State,
where I have discovered my true passion for wildlife conservation. This past summer, I worked as a full
time intern at Colorado Bend State Park in San Saba County. The Internship provided me with the
opportunity to learn the daily operations and practices of a Texas State Park including: natural resource
management, search and rescue operations, and law enforcement. Upon graduation, I plan to pursue a
career with Texas Parks and Wildlife in the Law Enforcement Division.
