Welcome to the Long Island Field Office of Ecological Services website. We are co-located with the Wertheim National Wildlife Refuge at their new visitor center in Shirley, New York, and are a sub-office of the New York Field Office in Cortland, New York. The Ecological Services function of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is responsible for the conservation and restoration of fish and wildlife habitat, especially wetland habitat. Field office biologists investigate the effects of contaminants and the measures and costs of contaminant clean-up, help recover threatened and endangered species, review proposals for wetland alterations from construction, and recommend measures to enhance fish and wildlife resources in conjunction with the licensing of power facilities and other Federal projects such as shoreline protection, storm flooding, etc. Our work with private individuals, organizations, and other State and Federal agencies protects and enhances fish and wildlife habitat on private, State, and Federal lands. The Offices also provide public information about the value and benefits derived from the conservation and restoration of fish, wildlife, plants, and their habitats.
