California is unique and diverse with the highest level of biodiversity in the entire nation. California has ancient sequoia forests, cool clear flowing streams with salmon, beautiful coastal views, productive farmlands, and unique fish, amphibians, wildlife, and plants. California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) has a public trust responsibility to protect and conserve California’s fish and wildlife resources.

CDFW uses several tools to protect and conserve fish and wildlife resources: environmental review, permitting, education, collaboration with other agencies and stakeholders, restoration, and enforcement.

Cannabis cultivators, like other project proponents, must comply with Fish and Game Code. Working together, we can ensure environmentally-friendly cannabis cultivation.
