Fisheries and Habitat Conservation: Our Mission Is to Provide Leadership in Sustaining and Enhancing Fish, Wildlife, and Their Habitats for the Benefit of the American People and to Engage Citizens in the Shared Stewardship of Our Nation's Natural Resources


DeWeerd, Amy, Parson, Tiffany, Endangered Species Bulletin


The Fish and Wildlife Service's Fisheries and Habitat Conservation (FHC) Program works in a multitude of ways to recover animals and plants listed under the Endangered Species Act and to restore populations of native species to avoid the need for future listings. One of the Service's most diverse programs, FHC works for healthy fish and wildlife populations, healthy habitats, healthy people, and a healthy economy.

Division of Habitat and Resource Conservation

* Branch of Advanced Planning and Habitat Conservation

* Branch of Resource Management Support

* Branch of Habitat Assessment

The Division of Habitat and Resource Conservation implements various programs to conserve and protect endangered species. It works with federal, state, and local partners to develop comprehensive, science-based restoration and/or conservation planning for infrastructure development and other activities that support Endangered Species Program priorities, as well as those for migratory birds and the National Fish Habitat Action Plan. States and other partners use the National Wetlands Inventory's digital wetlands maps and stares and trends information for conservation issues. The division also provides support and guidance for Service implementation of the Coastal Barrier Resources Act, Marine Mammal Protection Act, and Sikes Act.

Division of Environmental Quality

* Branch of Environmental Response and Restoration

* Analytical Control Facility

* Branch of Environmental Contaminants

* Branch of Invasive Species

This division is a national leader dedicated to protecting fish, wildlife, and their habitats from pollution's harmful effects. It works with partners to 1) conserve trust resources and their supporting habitats through contaminant prevention, 2) restore and recover trust resources and supporting habitats harmed by environmental contamination and other stressors, and 3) provide environmental contaminant expertise and high-quality scientific data to support sound management of trust resources. Additionally, we work with partners to 1) prevent the introduction and spread of aquatic nuisance species (ANS), 2) detect and rapidly respond to new introductions, 3) control established ANS where possible, 4) increase public awareness of invasive species issues through education and outreach programs, and 5) through the regulatory process, prevent the importation and interstate transport of injurious wildlife species.
