The Official Photostream for the Pacific Southwest Region of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

The Pacific Southwest Region includes California, Nevada and the Klamath Basin, in Oregon.

Region 8 was established in 1998 in recognition of the unique natural resource challenges facing California, Nevada and the Klamath Basin. Many of these challenges evolve from the inherently rich biodiversity of this area, coupled with many of the fastest growing communities in the nation. The Pacific-Southwest Region places decision-making at the local level, where managers can best develop partnerships with external groups and organizations that contribute to the conservation of fish, wildlife and plant resources.

We will continue to be a leader and trusted partner in fish and wildlife conservation, known for our scientific excellence, stewardship of lands and natural resources, dedicated professionals, and commitment to public service. Region 8 is headquartered in Sacramento, California.

The Fish and Wildlife Service also maintains an online digital media library at:
