As the Nation's principal conservation agency, the Department of the Interior has responsibility for
most of our nationally owned public lands and natural and cultural resources. This includes fostering
sound use of our land and water resources; protecting our fish, wildlife, and biological diversity;
preserving the environmental and cultural values of our national parks and historical places; and
providing for the enjoyment of life through outdoor recreation. The Department assesses our energy and
mineral resources and works to ensure that their development is in the best interests of all our people
by encouraging stewardship and citizen participation in their care. The Department also has a major
responsibility for American Indian reservation communities and for people who live in Island
Territories under U.S. administration.
