From the creation of the world's most comprehensive wildlife surveys to Rachel Carson's pioneering work on the effects of DDT on migratory birds, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has built a reputation for science excellence that spans decades. The Service’s Office of the Science Advisor (OSA) and Science Applications programs play a key role in supporting and strengthening our agency's tradition of scientific excellence in the conservation of fish, wildlife, plants and their habitat. Key efforts include:

  • Landscape Conservation Cooperatives -- a network of partnerships working to develop a shared understanding of landscape change to inform and facilitate collaborative action for resource conservation and adaptation.
  • Strategic Habitat Conservation -- Our agency’s approach for applying the best science to the conservation challenges of the 21st Century and making informed conservation decisions together with our partners.
