On April 2, 1972, USDA created the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) to bring together several functions focused on protecting the health and welfare of the Nation’s animals and plants. While both APHIS and the world have changed a lot over the past half decade years, the agency’s key mission remains the same today: safeguarding the health of American agriculture and natural resources.
