Our nation’s private landowners are critical to the success of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s mission to conserve, protect and enhance fish, wildlife, plants and their habitats. The Service has many tools and programs for conservation of fish, wildlife and plants on private lands.
The Panama City Field Office works with a diversity of partners such as private landowners, municipalities, industries, government agencies and non-profit organizations. We seek out opportunities where conservation agreements, restoration funding, and technical assistance can help conserve and restore key habitats and ecological functions.
We also work with
several federal agency partners on fish and wildlife
conservation in the Florida Panhandle. This is authorized
under several laws, including the Fish
and Wildlife Coordination Act, Sikes Act, Federal Power
Act, National Environmental Policy Act, and others.
