We work with partners including federal, state, private landowners, tribes and non-governmental organizations to implement conservation actions and promote healthy habitat to support and recover at-risk species and species listed under the Endangered Species Act.
Across our office area, our work with private landowners helps conserve or recover listed species, and other wildlife species, through habitat restoration projects and technical and financial assistance on private land.
What We Do
The Reno Fish and Wildlife Office is responsible for supporting the recovery of 25 endangered and threatened species found in northern Nevada, near Lake Tahoe and in the Eastern Sierra Nevada. Our goal is to help federally threatened and endangered plants and wildlife recover to healthy population levels and to prevent new species from needing the protections of the the Endangered Species Act through proactive conservation. Working with our partners, we focus much of our work incountry including Nevada's precious and spring systems, where the majority of sensitive wildlife and plant species are found.
Please enjoy our 2021 Year in Review to learn more about our recent conservation success stories, which would not be possible without our partners.
