Green Generation

Conservation agencies are building the next generation of conservationists. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and its employees are leaders in efforts to embolden the future of conservation to enhance the quality of life for our nation's fish and wildlife.

Earth Day 2009 will officially kick off the Earth Day Network's Green Generation campaign, an initiative to support a new generation of environmentalism that encourages large scale investments in renewable energy, environmental conservation efforts, and a comprehensive green jobs program. Although not a sponsor, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is part of the larger movement for a generational commitment to conservation and the environment.

Because the quality of life for fish and wildlife greatly depends on a sustainable environment, it is important to take action for wildlife and strive to reduce your overall impact. Learn about actions you can take to help wildlife. Go to the EPA's CO2 footprint calculator to evaluate your environmental impact, and to learn how to reduce your individual greenhouse gas emissions.

Remember, you and the environment are a winning combination. Be at the forefront of conservation by considering a career with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service - the premier government agency dedicated to conserving, protecting, and enhancing fish and wildlife and their habitats for the continuing benefit of the American people.

You can also help ensure a legacy of conservation by connecting your children with nature. A child's positive interaction with the natural environment can lead to a life-long interest in enjoying and conserving nature. Learn more at
