The Pacific Region contains diverse habitats, from coral reefs at Palmyra Atoll NWR, to old-growth rainforests in the west of the Cascade mountain range, to glacial lakes and streams in Washington's Northern Cascades, to arid shrub-steppe habitat in southern Idaho.
These habitats support over 400 threatened and endangered species, many unique and endemic plant and animal communities, and a variety of diverse land ownership patterns and land-use considerations.
Spanning five time zones and the International Date Line, the Region includes the States of Hawai’i, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington, as well as several Pacific island Territories, Commonwealths, and U.S. affiliated States.
The region manages (or co-manages) nearly 270 million acres of land, water, coral reefs and ocean floor on 67 national wildlife refuges and five national monuments, 11 ecological services field offices, eight fisheries stations and a research lab, 15 national fish hatcheries plus 26 state and tribal hatcheries funded, managed and/or administered through the Lower Snake River Compensation Plan, and the world’s only wildlife forensics laboratory.
The people of the different landscapes throughout the Region perceive, value and manage their natural resources in ways unique to their respective regions and cultures. Our work is therefore accomplished by working with a diverse coalition of conservation partners― agricultural and natural resource dependent communities, rural and urban landowners, Native American tribal governments and indigenous island communities, watershed councils, coral reef advisory groups, universities, land trusts, state and federal agencies, and many others.
