Meet the women of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in Ventura, California. This Women’s History Month, we honor the instrumental contributions of remarkable women to our ultimate mission: the conservation and protection of rare fish, wildlife, plants and their habitats for the continuing benefit of the American people. In this video series, you’ll hear what inspired these women to pursue careers in conservation, and what advice they have for young women today.
Did you know that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has an important connection to one of the most notable female conservation heroes: Rachel Carson, who, as one of the first female scientists and government leaders, revolutionized America’s interest in environmental issues?
