||The program is a live/work dwelling for an ecologist in residence at the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS). The ecologist in residence, a fictitious position, will be an annual fellow who will receive a stipend and expenses to live and conduct research on site and in the field. The expertise of the resident will vary from year to year, so the specific focus of his or her work or personality are not relevant. Instead, assume the resident will work to promote the mission of the FWS: working with others to conserve, protect ,and enhance fish, wildlife, and plants and their habitats for the continuing benefit of the American people.
