Habitat Conservation and Restoration

The Pacific Region Fish and Aquatic Conservation Program conserves, protects, and restores aquatic habitats that support healthy, sustainable populations of fish and other aquatic life. Species and habitat conservation efforts are concentrated in focal areas and priorities vary across the region based on local partnerships, interests, and species' management needs.

Our staff plays an integral role in guiding and leading these efforts through collaborative partnerships to ensure healthy functioning aquatic ecosystems (e.g., rivers, wetlands, and estuaries) and the native species they support. Our efforts are science-driven and take place at both the local and landscape levels to address pressing conservation challenges such as changing climate and invasive species.

We work in partnership with other federal agencies, states, tribes, non-governmental organizations, and private entities.
