US Fish and Wildlife Service


FWS Logo RGBThe mission of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is working with others to conserve, protect, and enhance fish, wildlife, plants, and their habitats for the continuing benefit of the American people. We are both a leader and trusted partner in fish and wildlife conservation, known for our scientific excellence, stewardship of lands and natural resources, dedicated professionals, and commitment to public service. We administer a system of National Wildlife Refuges and National Fish Hatcheries that protect important fish and wildlife and offer excellent outdoor experiences.


We enlist the power of partnerships to promote visitation to America’s national parks!
