Environmental Contaminants

Pollution is one of the American public's greatest environmental concerns. Like the proverbial "canary in the coal mine," the health of fish and wildlife often signal pollution problems that ultimately affect people and their quality of life. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) is the main federal agency dedicated to protecting wildlife and their habitat from pollution's harmful effects.
