    Another major environmental agency is the United States Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS), which, you guessed it: helps to protect mainly fish and natural wildlife.  Check out the citation for more information.

    No. Agencies like the U.S. Forest Service, an agency of the USDA, is a company that oversees permits and visitors that might alter the well being of wildlife throughout national parks in the U.S.

    The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is the only agency that is authorized by Congress to regulate and enforce environmental laws. There are many smaller environmental programs in the U.S., and every state has their own pollution control agency. 

    Some examples of some environmental groups are Greenpeace USA and the Rainforest Action Network.

    In addition to state agencies of environmental quality and regulation, many municipalities, both large and small, have environmental departments. Sometimes that may be just one person, sometimes it may be a large crew of men and women working on general problems as well as site-specific ones. In addition to state regulatory agencies, most states’ geological surveys have significant roles in studying environmental issues (often especially hydrogeology and water-related issues).
