Species that we have been petitioned to list as threatened or endangered:
Coaster Brook Trout - The Service was petitioned to list the coaster brook trout and we issued a positive 90-day finding on March 20, 2008. We then conducted a thorough review and analysis of available information. Based on that review we found that listing the coaster brook trout as endangered was not warranted and we published that finding on May 19, 2009.
Cerulean Warbler The Service was petitioned to list this species and on Dec. 6, 2006, we found that listing was not warranted. However, we are a member of the Cerulean Warbler Technical Group and our Migratory Birds program is actively working with partners in that group to conserve the Cerulean Warbler.
