Within the Upper Klamath Basin, conservation efforts are coordinated by the Klamath Falls Fish and Wildlife Office through the voluntary cooperation and participation of a variety of agencies, organizations, private landowners, and individuals. Conservation efforts to maintain and restore the function and health of the Upper Klamath Basin ecosystem are supported and facilitated through USFWS-sponsored activities including;
- Protecting and restoring animals and plants that are in danger of extinction both in the United States and worldwide.
- Providing expert biological advice to other Federal agencies, states, industry, and members of the public concerning the conservation of fish and wildlife habitats that may be affected by development activities.
- Administering Federal grant money to support specific projects carried out by state fish and wildlife agencies.
- Working private landowners and others to conserve and restore habitat on private lands.
