Endangered Species
Request A Species List
for a Federal project


The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service provides species lists for actions authorized, funded or carried out by federal agencies.  The species list fulfills our requirement, under section 7(c) of the Endangered Species Act, to provide a list of threatened and endangered species upon request for federal actions and National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) compliance.

The method for obtaining a species list has changed. You will now be able to get a species list through our new system called IPaC.


  • Go to the IPaC web page.

  • Click on the “Initial Project Scoping” tab to specify your project’s action
    area and request a species list.  (The action area refers to the area
    directly or indirectly affected by the proposed action; this area will
    usually be larger than the project footprint.)

  • Follow steps 1 through 4
