The Carlsbad Fish and Wildlife Office’s Public Affairs Division provides information and assistance to Congressional offices, other agencies, media outlets, and the general public about Service activities. 

Within our area of responsibility, which includes the Palm Springs Fish and Wildlife Office, we have 107 federally threatened or endangered species, approximately 22 million people, 27 Congressional districts and

35 federally recognized tribes.

Several Fish and Wildlife Offices in California and Nevada have realigned their respective office boundaries. Click here for a map showing the new boundaries.

For a complete list of species and associated documents within the jurisdiction of the Carlsbad office, please view our CFWO Species Status List page.

Carlsbad's news releases and associated species documents may be found at CFWO Species News, Photos and Info. All information is categorized by species name. At this site, you will also be able to access various data through the Service's Environmental Conservation Online System (ECOS),, and Flickr web pages.

To view news releases throughout our Pacific Southwest Region - California, Nevada, Klamath Basin, please visit our Regional Office's comprehensive News Release site.

You can also learn more about fish and wildlife activities and accomplishments from employees across the United States through our Service's Field Notes, Social Media Hub, and Daily News Blog.
