Lists of Northeast Species
A candidate species is a species for which we have enough information to warrant proposing them for listing under the Endangered Species Act, but we are precluded from doing so by higher listing priorities.
Threatened and Endangered Species
Under the Endangered Species Act, species may be listed as either endangered or threatened. "Endangered" means a species is in danger of extinction throughout all or a significant portion of its range. "Threatened" means a species is likely to become endangered within the foreseeable future.
See PDF of all species in Northeast Region that are listed as threatened or endangered, proposed for listing, candidates for listing or delisted (April 2013). You can also create a custom report of species by doing an advanced search.
