ADVANCING CONSERVATION ACROSS THE SOUTHERN AND CENTRAL CALIFORNIA COAST
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service works with others to conserve, protect, and enhance fish, wildlife, plants, and their habitats for the continuing benefit of the American people. Based in Ventura, Calif., our biologists and natural resource professionals work across the southern and central California coast in Santa Cruz, San Benito, Monterey, Santa Barbara and Ventura counties; portions of Los Angeles and San Luis Obispo counties; and the northern Channel Islands. The area is home to more than 100 federally endangered and threatened species. We are both a leader and trusted partner in fish and wildlife conservation, known for our scientific excellence, stewardship of lands and natural resources, dedicated professionals, and commitment to public service.
WORKING WITH OTHERS
Working with others is essential to protecting ecosystems that benefit society as a whole. We regularly engages conservation partners, the public, landowners, government agencies, Tribes, and other stakeholders in our ongoing effort to identify innovative strategies for conserving and recovering protected fish, wildlife, plants and their habitats. By using the best available science and ensuring all voices are included in our decision-making process, we can find balance between the needs of people and wildlife. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is working to build the next generation of conservation leaders. We are committed to building and maintaining a diverse and inclusive workforce that reflects the communities we live in.
