Oregon Fish and Wildlife- Bend Field Office

The focus of the Bend Field Office is to carry out the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's mission in central Oregon.  The Mission of the Fish and Wildlife Service is to work with others, to conserve, protect, and enhance fish, wildlife, and plants and their habitats for the continuing benefit of the American people.  We strive to accomplish this by working collaboratively with our partners to address fish and wildlife issues under the Endangered Species Act, Fish and Wildlife Coordination Act, and other federal authorities.

What We Do

  • Ecosystem Approach: Our focus is to restore and maintain functioning ecosystem processes and habitats that supports species conservation at a landscape level.
  • Species Recovery: We are working with local federal, state, tribal, county and private entities to recover and conserve listed and sensitive species, including Bull trout, Lahontan cutthroat trout, Foskett speckled dace, Borax Lake chub, Hutton tui chub, Warner sucker, Northern spotted owl, Malheur wire lettuce, Mid-Columbia River Steelhead, and Chinook salmon.
  • Species Conservation: We work to conserve sensitive species and the ecosystems on which they depend to ensure viability of species and to minimize or avoid the need for future listings.Partnerships: Through the Partners for Fish and Wildlife Program in central Oregon, we accomplish habitat restoration by combining Fish and Wildlife financial and technical assistance with the voluntary participation of landowners.
