About Us

The Indiana Ecological Services Field Office conducts recovery efforts for all federally listed species that occur in Indiana. We review all federally funded projects that occur in Indiana to ensure compliance with all federal wildlife laws. We respond to all oil spills in Indiana and investigate fish and wildlife impacts at contaminated sites throughout the state. We work with the wind energy industry to identify and reduce bat mortality at wind energy facilities.

Our History

The Indiana Ecological Services Field Office was established in Bloomington in the late 1970s to conserve federal trust resources (migratory birds, endangered species, certain fish populations) throughout the state, from the natural lakes area of northern Indiana to the limestone hills and bluffs along the shores of the Ohio River.

Other Facilities in this Complex

The Indiana Partners for Fish and Wildlife program is co-located with the Indiana Ecological Services Field Office in Bloomington.
