ORGANIZATION: U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service

Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge (RCNWR) is located in Wells, Maine. The Refuge is located along 50 miles of coastline in York and Cumberland Counties. Major habitat types present on the refuge include forested upland, barrier beach/dune, coastal meadows, tidal salt marsh, and the distinctive rocky coast. Beautiful and historic Wells continues to be one of the finest family vacation spots anywhere. The area near the office has numerous recreational activities include kayaking, canoeing, fishing, sailing and surfing, and nature photography. The awesome RCNWR staff work regularly with local community members and partners to improve habitat conditions for wildlife including piping plovers, New England cottontails, saltmarsh sparrows and least terns


Volunteers answer commonly asked questions and orient visitors to Refuge opportunities to experience nature and the outdoors.

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.
