The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service works with others to conserve, protect and enhance fish, wildlife, and plants and their habitats for the continuing benefit of the American people. This is accomplished through the dedicated efforts of more than 9,000 USFWS employees.
As a Strategic Partner, the agency supports TWS publications and communication channels both financially and through contributed content. Regular meetings between USFWS and TWS’ Government Affairs and Partnerships team identify research needs and priorities and support the Service’s conservation work. Natural resources students, particularly those of color or urban background, will benefit from the partner relationship’s emphasis on diversity and education. Once aspect of that focus includes USFWS sponsorship of up to three students for TWS’ Native Student Professional Development Program.
