Anchorage Fish & Wildlife Field Office
Grants & Partnerships
We work with others to conserve, protect, and enhance
fish, wildlife, plants, and their habitats for the continuing benefit
of the American people. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s
ecological services are built on a framework of partnership, whether our
scientists are promoting the recovery of a listed species; participating
in community watershed or land-use planning; reviewing Clean Water Act
Section 404 permits; supporting habitat restoration, research and education
efforts; conducting assessment, monitoring, and research activities; or
any of the myriad other services in which we engage with others to achieve
a beneficial co-existence between development and natural resources conservation.
Many ways to “partner.” We work together
to pool limited government resources, bring together the appropriate
experts, and promote efficiency and success through partnerships. We
believe our conservation mission will best be accomplished through voluntary
partnerships, two-way communication, and commitment to the best science.
You can partner with us:
- Call us early if you anticipate planning or development work involving
wetlands or tidelands, and to find out about endangered species considerations
at your project site.
Important Note: Under the Endangered Species Act
(ESA), all projects permitted, authorized, or funded by federal
authorities that may affect endangered species must undergo ESA
Section 7 consultation. Contact us if you have questions concerning
this process or other federal requirements.
- Learn more about Alaska’s valuable natural resources and ecology.
The Fish and Wildlife Service is a good place to start.
- Contact our Habitat Restoration Program staff if you are interested
in cost-share opportunities through our Coastal, Partners for Fish
and Wildlife, or Fish Passage Programs. For more about specific efforts,
see Habitat Restoration Projects.
- For more information about grants/partnerships with the Alaska
Region, see Grants.
