The Environmental Contaminants Program of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service provides specialized expertise in pollution science to identify and prevent adverse effects from environmental contamination, and then to restore natural resources that have been injured or loss by contamination. We respond to oil and chemical spills, help develop spill contingency response plans, determine water quality effects on fish and wildlife, determine pesticide effects, and conduct realty preacquision surveys. We conduct natural resource damage assessments, ecological risk assessments, pollution studies, and realty preacquision appraisals. We integrate our actions with other agency activities and we work with State, Federal, Tribal agencies, and private organizations.
