U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service
As the Nation’s principle conservation
agency, the Department of the Interior has
responsibility for most of our nationally
owned public lands and natural resources.
This includes fostering the wisest use of
our land and water resources, protecting
our fish and wildlife, preserving the
environmental and cultural values of our
national parks and historical places, and
providing for the enjoyment of life through
outdoor recreation. The Department
assesses our energy and mineral resources
and works to assure that their development
is in the best interests of all our people. The
Department also has a major responsibility
for American Indian reservation
communities and for people who live in
island territories under U.S. administration.
