Threatened and Endangered Species
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, in the Department of the Interior, and the National Marine Fisheries Service which is part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), in the Department of Commerce, share responsibility for administration of the Endangered Species Act (ESA). Look below to learn more about what the Fish and Wildlife Service does to carry out this responsibility.
In addition to the information available on this site, you can also explore the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s national web site which contains an ESA regulatory profile for all threatened and endangered species.
