The New Jersey Field Office is located in Galloway, New Jersey, a short distance outside of Atlantic City. We are the local Ecological Services field station, serving all of New Jersey in four program areas: endangered species, conservation planning assistance, environmental contaminants, and private lands restoration.
What We Do
The New Jersey Field Office works with experts, conservation groups, landowners, and many others to protect and recover threatened and endangered species. We coordinate with federal and state agencies, local governments, the business community, and private citizens to make sure that wildlife resources are considered during project planning, such as for transportation, energy, coastal management, and development. New Jersey Field Office biologists serve on oil spill response teams, investigate the effects of environmental contamination, and work to restore polluted habitats. And we work with private landowners to restore fish and wildlife habitats.
