The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is there to protect our wild spaces and endangered animals.  This governmental agency has been around since 1871, and it isn’t going away any time soon.

The organization is now broken down into several different branches, which are in charge of wildlife preserves, national fish hatcheries, law enforcement and ecological services.  It also studies sustainable, natural energy sources.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service studies and determines critical habitat to protect and defend.  It works for the preservation of our fish and bird populations, and it attempts to keep waterways pristine.
