The New Jersey Field Office in Pleasantville, New Jersey


The New Jersey Field Office is one of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's Ecological Services field stations. As such, we are charged with protecting and restoring plants and animals that the Federal government classifies as endangered or threatened. We also work with private landowners as well as municipalities to enhance the habitat value of specific sites. We investigate contaminant issues affecting fish and wildlife and prevent their further degradation or loss through habitat restoration or enhancement. We cooperate with other Federal and State agencies on a variety of regulatory issues and conservation projects. And we promote environmental education and outreach efforts.

The goal of the New Jersey Field Office is to sustain and safeguard fish and wildlife resources for present and future generations.

To accomplish this goal, the New Jersey Field Office undertakes many activities
