Meet the women of the US Fish and Wildlife Service in Ventura, California. This Women’s History Month, we honor the instrumental contributions of outstanding women to our ultimate mission: to preserve and protect rare fish, wildlife, plants, and their habitats for the continued benefit of the American people. In this video series, you’ll hear what inspired these women to pursue careers in conservation and what advice they give young women of today.
Did you know that the US Fish and Wildlife Service has an important relationship with one of the most prominent champions of conservation: Rachel Carson, who revolutionized US interest in environmental issues as one of the first female scientists and government leaders?
