The Kentucky Field Office was established in 2001 and is a leader in conserving Kentucky imperiled species and their habitats, ensuring that sustainable populations of fish, wildlife, and plants continue to thrive for future generations. Our team is involved in conservation throughout the state, focusing on recovery of over 49 threatened and endangered species, with the majority occurring in central and east Kentucky.
What We Do
The Kentucky Field Office provides assistance to Federal and State agencies, local governments, businesses, and the general public relative to conserving, protecting, and restoring habitat for federally threatened and endangered species. Our assistance is typically provided through six programs: pre-development consultation, federal permits and projects, endangered species listing and recovery, environmental contaminants, Partners for Fish and Wildlife, and education/outreach.

A fundamental tenet in our approach to conservation is community engagement – from working with private landowners wanting to improve endangered species habitat on their land, to helping non-profits doing on-the-ground work.
