The U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service Endangered Species Program has launched a new, web-based interactive map with information about endangered species success in every state: stories of species making strides towards recovery, audio interviews and podcasts with Service biologists about on-the-ground endangered species conservation, and videos that highlight the Service’s partners.

The interactive map can be found online at http://www.fws.gov/endangered/ and also has links for the Endangered Species Program’s new weekly e-newsletter and ways to connect via social media.

The Endangered Species Act provides a safety net for America’s native fish, wildlife and plants. The Service is actively engaged with conservation partners and the public in the search for improved and innovative ways to conserve and recover imperiled species.

Information contained in older news items may be outdated. These materials are made available as historical archival information only.
