Social Media in the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
We are the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the premiere federal agency charged with protecting and enhancing America's treasured fish, wildlife, plants, and their habitats.
We work for the perpetuation of diverse and abundant wildlife because biodiversity is essential to maintaining the health of our environment, our families, and our economy.
We maintain a network of public lands totaling upwards of 150 million acres. In order to best serve the needs of wildlife and people, we are split into eight geographic regions and nearly 700 field stations, with our headquarters located in Falls Church, Virginia.
Our approach with social media takes cues from our agency structure and translates it into the digital space. In the interest of allocating our resources carefully and effectively, we have developed a strategic approach to social media wherein we choose which platforms we use based on how well they help us accomplish our mission.
This website provides as a hub for all of our social media policies and best practices, along with contact information and links to individual social media presences.
