The mission of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is "working with others to conserve, protect, and enhance fish, wildlife, and plants and their habitats for the continuing benefit of the American people.'
We carry out the Service’s mission through four programs: Ecological Services, Fisheries and Aquatic Conservation, Habitat Restoration, and Science Applications. Our work spans the beautiful towering redwoods of northwestern California, the foggy shores of the Pacific, and includes majestic watersheds such as the Klamath River.
What We Do
The Arcata Fish and Wildlife Office collects and maintains information on listed species that live in Del Norte, western Siskiyou, Humboldt, Trinity, and coastal Mendocino Counties, including legal status, survey and distributional data, life history requirements, recovery needs, population status, threats, and conservation needs.
