"Native Americans must be part of the conservation decision-making. They deserve no less, and the stakes – the very future of the wild things and wild places we all hold dear – are too great not to welcome a key partner to the table."
The mission of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is working with others to conserve, protect, and enhance fish, wildlife, plants, and their habitats for the continuing benefit of the American people. We are both a leader and trusted partner in fish and wildlife conservation, known for our scientific excellence, stewardship of lands and natural resources, dedicated professionals, and commitment to public service.
