The North Dakota Field Office, established in 1972, is one of 78 Ecological Services field stations across the United States. Currently, we have a staff of 4 biologists, 1 budget and administration specialist, and a Field Supervisor.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) Office in Bismarck may be unique in the Service in that it includes not only Ecological Services, but also Partners for Fish and Wildlife, Wetland Acquisition Office, the Habitat and Population Evaluation Team, Office of Law Enforcement, Missouri River Fish and Wildlife Conservation Office, and an archeologist for North Dakota.
Having all these divisions collocated is recognized within the Service as an outstanding asset of the North Dakota Office.
