The Mountain-Prairie Region's Office of Ecological Services (ES) works to restore and protect healthy populations of fish, wildlife, and plants and the environments upon which they depend. Using the best available science, ES personnel work with Federal, State, Tribal, local, and non-profit stakeholders, as well as private land owners, to avoid, minimize, and mitigate threats to our Nation's natural resources. Among the many tools ES employs to achieve these goals is the administration of numerous laws, including the Endangered Species Act, Fish and Wildlife Coordination Act, National Environmental Policy Act, Clean Water Act, Federal Power Act, Migratory Bird Treaty Act, Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act, and Sikes Act.
We also conduct oil spill and other environmental contaminant assessment and response activities, promote invasive species management and habitat restoration actions, conduct public outreach and education, and coordinate with other Federal agencies to ensure fish and wildlife impacts are considered during the planning and construction of projects such as roads, dams, energy (oil and gas, wind and coal), and forest and rangeland management.
