Welcome Message from the Chief Human Capital Officer

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. It is our hope that you find our organization a welcoming one that provides you with opportunities to grow and excel.

Our employees are our greatest asset, bringing differences in perspectives and ideas that are the very foundation of our success as the premier federal agency dedicated to wildlife conservation.

Whether you work at a field station, Regional Office, or Headquarters, you will help the Service realize our mission of working with others to conserve, protect, and enhance fish, wildlife, plants, and their habitats for the continuing benefit of the American people.

Contained within these pages are highlights of our various programs, our mission to serve, as well as other important information for you to reference as you prepare for your first day with us.
