Environmental Contaminants

Prevent contaminant impacts and restore natural resources impacted by environmental contaminants.


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.

Fish and Wildlife Service biologists investigating whether lead ammunition used for deer hunts causes eagle mortality.

Region 3 personnel from the National Wildlife Refuge System, Migratory Birds Program, and Environmental Contaminants Program form a science team.  The science team is investigating whether lead ammunition used in deer hunting on Refuge lands has the potential to cause mortality in bald eagles foraging on the offal.  More about the study to test liver tissue for lead exposure from dead bald eagles being shipped off to the National Eagle Feather Repository.
