The Idaho Fish and Wildlife Office is part of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's Ecological Services program. We work closely with diverse partners to conserve the natural resources of Idaho, and together, find balance between the needs of people and wildlife.

About Us

The Idaho Fish and Wildlife Office is headquartered in Boise, Idaho, with field offices in Chubbuck and Coeur d'Alene. We are committed to working with others to conserve fish, wildlife, plants, and their habitats in Idaho. The Idaho Fish and Wildlife Office is part of the Department of Interior's Columbia Pacific Northwest Region, which includes Washington, Oregon, and Idaho. The Service's Columbia Pacific Northwest Regional Office is located in Portland, Oregon.  

What We Do

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is at the forefront of applying the best known science to our conservation work. Our goal is to help federally threatened and endangered plants and wildlife recover to healthy population levels and to prevent new species from needing the protections of the the Endangered Species Act through proactive conservation. Working with our partners, we focus much of our work where the majority of Idaho's sensitive wildlife and plant species are found. Explore some of the key conservation work we're conducting in Idaho.

Our Organization

The Gem State is filled with a rich variety of landscapes and habitats and is home to an amazing assortment of terrestrial and aquatic species.  We have offices throughout the state in order to work locally with you to conserve natural resources for wildlife and people alike.  The Idaho Fish and Wildlife Office offers this page as a resource to students, educators, and other curious people, so all may benefit from an enhanced understanding of fish, wildlife, and plants.

Our Species

The Idaho Fish and Wildlife Office works with many threatened and endangered species that occur in Idaho. Our office works with landowners, leading scientists, other Federal and state agency biologists, and Tribes to gather the best available science on each species and their habitat.
