US Fish and Wildlife Service, the federal agency that manages much of the nation’s rich fish, migratory bird and wildlife resources, manages the six National Wildlife Refuges that grace the Oregon Coast. In addition, staff work with agencies, organizations and private landowners to conserve species and their habitats off the Refuge lands. The Ecological Services Division of the USFWS is a counterpart to the Refuges, providing technical assistance, funding, and expertise to assist others with conservation of coastal ecosystems.
