Our Field Office is located in the Fairbanks Federal Building. Fairbanks is home to over 80 permanent US Fish and Wildlife Service employees and is a gateway to northern National Wildlife Refuges like Arctic, Kaunti, and Yukon Flats. Take a tour of our vision for how we plan to provide a more accessible/net zero energy facility where the public can learn about their public lands and interact with U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service staff.
Our Utqiaġvik Satellite Office was established in 2010 to help increase our understanding of the subsistence needs and cultural values of North Slope residents and to better achieve our mission of working with others to conserve, protect, and enhance fish, wildlife, plants, and their habitats for the continuing benefit of the American people. A priority for this office is to continue to improve communication between the Service and local residents and partners on the North Slope.
