Conserving, protecting and enhancing fish, wildlife, and plants and their habitats, in cooperation with partners, for the benefit of the American people.
Working with partners and stakeholders across the landscape to protect, restore, and enhance our priority trust resources and habitats. This will be accomplished by adopting a pro-active, science-based approach to conservation while maximizing our finite staffing, funding, and office resources.
The Alabama Field Office supports all species under the ESA, but our office has ten priority species. Those include Tulotoma snail, Fine-lined pocketbook, Alabama sturgeon, Red-cockaded woodpecker, Red Hills salamander, Alabama red-bellied turtle, Gopher tortoise, Mohr's Barbara's button, Alabama beach mouse, and Slabside Pearlymussel. Our geographic priorities include coastal Alabama, Long-leaf pine, Paint Rock watershed, Escambia/Conecuh watersheds, East-Central Bibb County, and Critical Habitat Units.
