Partnership Categories

Great things happen when partners are matched with the right opportunities. That's why we work with many types of partners at FWS from local businesses and conservation groups to veterans and large industry partners. Here are just a few of the Partner Categories working with FWS today.

We frequently partner with academia to further the conservation of and research into the stewardship of many species.

We often partner with non-governmental conservation organizations on conservation projects, whether it's to conserve identified species such as the monarch butterfly or to advise on land acquisition for conservation so that it has the greatest benefit for species.

We partner with these groups to help them conduct their commercial activities in a way that best promotes conservation.

We work with other federal agencies to help them meet their legal responsibilities as well as their mission.

Friends groups are organizations of community members committed to helping national wildlife refuges and national fish hatcheries meet conservation goals that would otherwise be out of reach. 

Partnering with energy, construction, and other private sector organizations to find creative solutions to conservation challenges.

As a Federal agency we partner with local government agencies and share in the responsibility of stewarding management and recovery of species.

Those who experience the outdoors and wildlife first-hand become its greatest conservationists.  We partner with these groups to foster their love of wildlife and conservation.

Here we partner with a wider variety of other organizations on projects to meet shared conservation goals.

Our hands-on stewardship and public engagement is often done in conjunction with state and provincial agencies.

We partner with tribal organizations to help manage or influence some of the most important aquatic habitats both on and off reservations.

The future of conservation lies in the hands of today's youth. We partner with youth-based conservation groups to foster a love of the outdoors and a stewardship ethic in our youth.
