U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service Restoration StoryMaps
The United States Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS or FWS) is an agency of the US federal government within the US Department of the Interior dedicated to the management of fish, wildlife, and natural habitats. CGA Interns work with USFWS scientists to develop public-facing StoryMaps showcasing conservation and restoration projects. View the StoryMaps linked below to see examples of this collaboration.
