Division of Environmental Quality

Pollution is one of the American public's greatest environmental concerns. Like the proverbial "canary in the coal mine," fish and wildlife often signal pollution problems that ultimately affect people and their quality of life. NFWO: Envronmental Quality ProgramThe U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) is the main federal agency dedicated to protecting wildlife and their habitat from pollution's harmful effects, helping to create a healthy world for all living things.

VISION: The vision of the Nevada Fish and Wildlife Office Division of Environmental Quality is to leave a legacy of fish, wildlife, and plants and their habitats free from adverse impacts of environmental pollution. We will pursue this vision by: emphasizing prevention of contamination, in the first place; and removing threats of pre-existing environmental contamination, recognizing that environmental contamination already exists across the Regional landscape.
