    Partnerships

    The Service’s mission is “working with others, to conserve, protect and enhance fish, wildlife, plants and their habitats for the continuing benefit of the American people”. We recognize that we can’t do this work alone. To achieve our mission, the Service depends on partnerships with federal, state, non-government entities, and individuals. Research conducted within the Service and through our scientific partnerships (highlighted below) helps ensure that our decisions can be informed by sound science.  Learn more...
