Threatened and Endangered Species

  • Endangered Species Program: The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has done a better job than we could do in providing information about the Act, including access to the full text of the Act, information about species, other laws and policies, and what the FWS does regarding the Act.
     
  • IUCN Red List of Threatened Species: Provides taxonomic, conservation status and distribution information on taxa that have been evaluated using the IUCN Red List Categories and Criteria. This system is designed to determine the relative risk of extinction, and the main purpose of the IUCN Red List is to catalogue and highlight those taxa that are facing a higher risk of global extinction (i.e. those listed as Critically Endangered, Endangered and Vulnerable).
     
  • Managing Rangeland: Endangered Species Issues: From the Idaho State One Plan Project. This is a section on rangeland management and endangered species.
     
  • Montana Threatened and Endangered Species: Montana Fish, Wildlife, and Parks Commission.
     
  • New Mexico Threatened and Endangered Species: 1998 Biennial Review and Recommendations from the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish.
     
  • North Dakota's Endangered and Threatened Species: Quick guide designed to list and provide information about the federally listed threatened and endangered species found in North Dakota. From the Northern Prairie Wildlife Research Center.
     
  • Oklahoma's Endangered and Threatened Species and Species of Special Concern: Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation.
     
  • Oregon List of Threatened and Endangered Fish and Wildlife Species: A simple list giving common name, scientific name, and whether threatened or endangered. From the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife.
     
  • Plant Conservation Alliance: A consortium of ten federal government Member agencies and over 145 non-federal Cooperators representing various disciplines within the conservation field: biologists, botanists, habitat preservationists, horticulturists, resources management consultants, soil scientists, special interest clubs, non-profit organizations, concerned citizens, nature lovers, and gardeners. PCA Members and Cooperators work collectively to solve the problems of native plant extinction and native habitat restoration, ensuring the preservation of our ecosystem.
  • USGS National GAP Analysis Program:Gap Analysis is a scientific means for assessing to what extent native animal and plant species are being protected. The goal of Gap Analysis is to keep common species common by identifying those species and plant communities that are not adequately represented in existing conservation lands. Gap Analysis came out of the realization that a species-by-species approach to conservation is not effective because it does not address the continual loss and fragmentation of natural landscapes. Only by protecting regions already rich in habitat, can we adequately protect the animal species that inhabit them.
     
  • Washington Threatened and Endangered Species: Lists endangered, threatened, designated, candidate, proposed, and 'of concern' species, with most linked to a page with a brief description and pictures. From the Washington Department of Transportation.
     
  • Wolves in Utah: An Analysis of Potential Impacts and Recommendations for Management: Reviews the potential of wolves in Utah and makes predictions regarding the social and economic impacts of wolf recolonization on the livestock industry, on hunter success, and on wildlife managers, and then makes recommendations on possible ways to mitigate these impacts. From the College of Natural Resources, Utah State University.
