International Affairs Program

Through our international programs, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service works with many partners and nations to coordinate domestic and international efforts to protect, restore, and enhance the world’s diverse animals and plants and their habitats.

U.S. laws and international treaties that we implement, such as the Wild Bird Conservation Act and the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES), have a positive impact on pollinators by ensuring that animals from birds to tree

shrews (which play a role in seed dispersal) are not harmed by international trade and to support conservation and sustainable use that benefits pollinators and their habitat.

The work we do to help pollinators knows no boundaries!

Please visit the International Affairs Program homepage to read more information on the U.S. role in global conservation and responsibilities for managing international wildlife trade.
