In Alaska, we partner with private landowners, the State of Alaska, non-profits, tribal entities, universities, other federal agencies, and others to maintain and/or restore important habitats for native fish and wildlife via four programs: Fish Passage Program, Coastal Program, Partners for Fish & Wildlife Program, and the National Fish Habitat Partnership (NFHP). We pay up to 50% of project costs and local Service biologists provide informal advice on the design and location of potential projects and capacity for on-the-ground project implementation and monitoring.
