SUMMER Work Camper Volunteers

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service

Volunteers must be able to handle the hot, humid Florida weather. Volunteers will have the opportunity to be on kayaks or the boardwalk at Three Sisters Springs. They will also be assisting with day-to-day Refuge maintenance. We rely heavily on volunteers in order to protect and maintain the habitats here in Crystal River, Florida.


Established in 1983, Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge is the only refuge created specifically for the protection of the threatened Florida Manatee, a subspecies of the West Indian Manatee. This unique refuge preserves the last unspoiled and undeveloped spring habitat in Kings Bay, which forms the headwaters of the Crystal River.

Mission Statement

Working with others to conserve, protect and enhance fish, wildlife and plants and their habitats for the continuing benefit of the American people.

Description

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is the premier government agency dedicated to the conservation, protection, and enhancement of fish, wildlife and plants, and their habitats. We are the only agency in the federal government whose primary responsibility is the conservation and management of these important natural resources for the American public.


The agency includes both the National Wildlife Refuge System and the National Fish Hatchery System.

The Service's origins date back to 1871 when Congress established the U.S. Fish Commission to study the decrease in the nation’s food fishes and recommend ways to reverse that decline. (More on our history below.) Today, we are a diverse and largely decentralized organization, employing about 8,000 dedicated professionals working out of facilities across the country.
