Public employees are a unique force working for environmental enforcement. In the ever-changing tide of political leadership, these front-line employees stand as defenders of the public interest within their agencies and as the first line of defense against the exploitation and pollution of our environment. Their unmatched technical knowledge, long-term service and proven experiences make these professionals a credible voice for meaningful reform.

Texas PEER works state-wide with government scientists, land managers, environmental law enforcement agents, field specialists and other resource professionals committed to responsible management of America’s public resources. Resource employees in government agencies have unique responsibilities as stewards of the environment. PEER supports those who are courageous and idealistic enough to seek a higher standard of environmental ethics and scientific integrity within their agency. Our constituency represents one of the most crucial and viable untapped resources in the conservation movement.

Texas Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (Texas PEER) is a local chapter of a private, nonprofit organization that provides uniquely valuable services to government employees charged with safeguarding the nation's natural resources.

Agency employees -- scientists, land managers, law officers, and others -- are on the cutting edge of natural resource protection. Texas PEER believes they represent our nation's most effective line of defense against abuse of public lands, wildlife mismanagement and threats to human health.

Rather than work on environmental issues from the outside, Texas PEER works with and on behalf of these resource professionals to effect fundamental change in the way their agencies conduct the public's business. Above all, Texas PEER promotes environmental ethics and government accountability.
