Maine Field Office
The Ecological Services program of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is responsible for the conservation and restoration of fish and wildlife and their habitats. Maine Field Office biologists investigate the effects of contaminants and recover damages for injuries to Department of the Interior trust resources caused by oil or chemical releases. We also help recover threatened and endangered species and review proposals for wetland and stream alterations from many types of development. We recommend measures to enhance fish and wildlife resources in conjunction with the licensing of energy generation facilities and other Federal projects such as shoreline protection, navigation and flood control, etc. Our work with private individuals, organizations, and other State and Federal agencies protects, restores and enhances fish and wildlife habitat on private, State, and Federal lands. Our office also provides the public with information about the value and benefits derived from the conservation and restoration of fish, wildlife, plants, and their habitats.
