|Mission||"Working with others to conserve, protect, and enhance fish, wildlife and plants and their habitats"|
The USFWS Partners for Fish and Wildlife Program was established in 1987 with a core group of biologists and a small budget for on-the-ground wetland restoration projects on private lands. This successful, results-oriented program has garnered support through the years and has grown into a larger and more diversified habitat restoration program assisting more than 46,000 private landowners across the Nation.
The Partners for Fish & Wildlife Program provides technical and financial assistance to private and Tribal landowners interested in restoring, enhancing and managing fish and wildlife habitats on their land. Through a landowner agreement, landowners agree to maintain the habitat improvement project for at least ten years, but otherwise retain ownership and full control of their land.
Today, the Partners for Fish & Wildlife Program is equipped with more than 300 full-time staff, located in all fifty States and Territories. All of our habitat improvement projects are developed on individual basis and implemented at the field level.
