About Our Office
City Field Office of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service led by Project Leader Catherine Phillips, was established in 1973 and employs 29 individuals
including 25 biologists and ecologists. Our office is unique because we have both an Ecological Services (ES) team and a Fish & Wildlife Conservation Office (FWCO) team working side by side.
Our ES team, lead by Deputy Project Leader Sean Blomquist, works to recover imperiled plant and animal species while promoting the voluntary conservation of other vulnerable wildlife throughout the Panhandle serving 16 counties in Northwest Florida covering Tallahassee, Panama City, Ft. Walton Beach and Pensacola.
Our FWCO team, lead by Deputy Project Leader/FWCO Project Leader Mark Cantrell, works with partners to restore and maintain fish and other aquatic resources covering the entire Northeast Gulf, including portions
of Alabama and Georgia, ensuring these resources stay rich and diverse.
