About Us

The Austin Ecological Services Field Office achieves conservation from central and western Texas through collaboration with our partners at state and federal agencies, local governments, private citizens and non-government organizations. We strive to protect federally threatened and endangered species and the habitats they depend upon, migratory birds, and interjurisdictional fish by applying the best-known science to conservation work. 

Our Mission

The vision of the Austin Ecological Services Field Office is to ensure healthy, abundant, and sustainable populations of fish, wildlife, and plants across central and western Texas. We strive to conserve and protect species and their habitats through science-based decision-making and with the continued collaboration of our various partners for future generations. 

Our History

The Ausin Ecological Services Field Office was established in 1991 by former U.S. Fish & Wildlife Director Sam Hamilton.
