About Us

Established in 2009, the San Francisco Bay-Delta office serves as a public partner supporting the conservation of wildlife, plants and their habitats in the Bay Area, the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta, the Sacramento and San Joaquin rivers and their tributaries, and the Central Valley of California.

Our scientists work to protect a wide range of at-risk species including fish, flowers, butterflies, birds, snakes, mammals and amphibians. We work with the public and other agencies in all our efforts to help sustainable populations of species thrive, such as conducting research, restoring habitats and shaping development plans that balance growth with conservation.

Our Mission

The San Francisco Bay-Delta Fish and Wildlife Office works with community members, partner agencies, nonprofits and other stakeholders to conserve and recover California’s fish, wildlife and plants, and to restore and enhance their habitats for future generations.

Our Vision

A leader in natural resource planning, research and restoration, we will continue to be a trusted partner in conservation, known for our scientific excellence, integrity and commitment to public service, and for our support of personal and professional development through a culture of mentoring, collegiality and collaboration.
