By County - April, 2011


The Alabama County Species lists will now be maintained through our ECOS website. We will still provide critical habitat lists on this page but you will not need to click on the county name to access the county list through ECOS. We are continually updating this list and, therefore, it may be incomplete and is provided strictly for informational purposes. This list does not constitute any form of Section 7 consultation. We recommend that you contact our office (Daphne, AL Field Office - USFWS) for more current, site specific information prior to project activities. To be certain of occurrence, surveys should be conducted by qualified biologists to determine if a Federally protected species occurs within a project area. Locations of designated critical habitat have also been included for your information. You can also take a look at our critical habitat web portal, featuring CH maps across the country.
