US Fish and Wildlife Service, New York Field Office

U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service,
New York Field Office

The 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. At the New York Field Office, our work includes conserving and protecting federally listed fish, wildlife, and plant species in New York with the goal to eventually recover and remove them from protections of the Endangered Species Act as well as working to preclude the need to list at-risk species.

The New York Field Office strives to conserve and protect the environment while forming meaningful and diverse community connections. We work with Federal and State agencies, indigenous tribes, local governments, and partners to empower accessible environmental stewardship within our community. We provide technical expertise to others to address climate change, green energy solutions, and infrastructure development. We conduct work with others through the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, the Fish Enhancement, Mitigation and Restoration Fund, the Delaware Conservation Act, the Chesapeake WILD Act, and the Upper Susquehanna Conservation Alliance to achieve ecosystem restoration and resilience. Our work requires the conservation of shared natural resources for generations to come so that all people may enjoy the beauty of a healthy and functional environment.
