One of the primary responsibilities of the Environmental Contaminants (EC) program is the identification of environmental contaminant problems affecting National Wildlife Refuge lands, migratory birds, and threatened and endangered species. When problems are identified, appropriate actions are pursued to eliminate the contaminant threat and restore affected resources. Equally important, the program provides technical assistance to other Service programs, to State and Federal agencies, tribes and to the public.
