The Service has been working with counterparts in Mexico for many decades to conserve our shared natural wealth. This includes 119 shared species listed under the Endangered Species Act. These species are threatened by deforestation, unsustainable land-use practices and the illegal wildlife trade. Our signature initiatives for conservation in Mexico focus on decision makers, protected area managers, and community leaders.
Since 1972, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has cooperated with Russia to conserve shared wildlife and their habitats. This program supports technical and scientific exchanges, inter-governmental relations, and conservation in Russia’s nature reserves and national parks through a competitive grants program.
