The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service works collaboratively with other federal agencies, industries, and other stakeholders to achieve infrastructure development goals in ways that are sustainable and compatible with the conservation of fish, wildlife, and their habitats.

What We Do

Our Services

We assist project proponents, planners, and agency personnel in developing plans that conserve, restore, or enhance plant and animal species, while accomplishing the objectives of proposed development. Our biologists review and provide recommendations on plans and development designs, craft mitigation plans, provide expertise in wildlife and habitat science, and serve as members on planning teams.

Our Laws and Regulations

Our biologists in the field fulfill numerous duties under multiple authorities, including the Endangered Species Act, Clean Water Act, Federal Power Act, Fish and Wildlife Coordination Act, National Environmental Policy Act, and Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act.
