Smart Energy Partner

US Fish and Wildlife Service's Pacific Regional Office

As the nation's principle federal conservation agency, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is dedicated to helping reduce the impacts of climate change on fish, wildlife, plants and their habitats. Our 9,000 employees nationwide specialize in wildlife management and ecosystem dynamics, and have an extensive network of partners who work alongside us to protect our nation's fish and wildlife resources.

We are already working with partners and available resources to address climate change effects on wildlife. Accelerating climate change will amplify many of the conservation challenges our employees are dealing with today. We cannot meet these challenges alone.

Additionally, The Joinery has reduced the amount of waste sent to landfills by 50 percent through donating scrap and sawdust and has received recognition from the City of Portland's RecycleWorks program.

We are also developing a climate change strategic plan. Following this plan, over the next 5 years we will acquire additional resources and build our organization's capacity to address the impacts of climate change on natural systems. This capacity will enable our employees to more effectively plan, design, implement, and monitor strategic conservation efforts. Our Pacific Regional Office's participation in the Smart Energy program is a big step in helping us achieve our goal of becoming a carbon neutral agency by 2020.
