Our Work

Healthy habitat for fish, wildlife, and you—that’s at the heart of our work. Our responsibility is conserving coastal, marine, and riverine habitat so that we—and future generations—can continue to enjoy the benefits of sustainable commercial and recreational fisheries and hardy coastal communities in the face of a changing climate.

Some of our targeted efforts include our work protecting and restoring fish habitat such as wetlands and coral reefs, opening streams and rivers for fish passage, planning for climate adaptation, and collaborating with partners and federal agencies on regional ecosystem conservation. And, after receiving $167 million in funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, we continue one of our largest tasks to date—50 large scale restoration projects with partners around the country.
