The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has several strategic goals that focus its efforts on serving the American people. The USGS Ecosystems Mission Area has responsibility for the following objectives under the strategic goal of “Science to Manage and Sustain Resources for Thriving Economies and Healthy Ecosystems”:

  • Understand, model, and predict change in natural systems
  • Conserve and protect wildlife and fish species and their habitats
  • Reduce or eliminate the threat of invasive species and wildlife disease
