Working With Others

family

We work for you ... by working with you to protect the nature of America!

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service helps protect a healthy environment for fish and wildlife ... and for people. We encourage Americans to enjoy the outdoors. In all of our activities, “you” are part of the equation. Our national wildlife refuges provide hunting and fishing opportunities for millions of Americans ... and spectacular sites for the rapidly growing number of Americans who do their wildlife-watching with binoculars, camera, or sketch pad. Our world-famous “Duck Stamp” contest yields high-quality art for each year’s migratory bird hunting stamp – and many bucks for the ducks! Our landowner assistance programs and grants encourage people like you to maintain and conserve fish, wildlife, plants, and their habitats right there in your own hometowns. And we manage the nation’s Federal Aid programs for fish and wildlife, through which hunters and anglers pay to sustain their sports ... and a brighter future for America’s wildlife.
