Air Force Partnerships


USFWS Southeast Region and United States Air Force Partnership

The US Air Force is steward to millions of acres of lands used for national defense purposes that include a variety of intact ecosystems, including habitat that harbors listed and at risk species.  An interagency agreement between the USFWS and Air Force solidifies the cooperation between the agencies in relying on Service expertise to execute a program to protect and enhance the ecosystems under Air Force stewardship.  This also benefits the Service's mission for the American people in that it allows protection of lands and waters that are essential for conservation and sustainment of listed and at risk species while at the same time allowing the Air Force to maintain mission flexibility while complying with Federal laws.
