Endangered Species Request A Species List for a Federal project
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service provides species lists
for actions carried out, funded or authorized by Federal
agencies. For actions carried out by non-federal entities,
please contact the Oregon Biodiversity Information Center at 503-725-9950 to request a species list.
The purpose of a species list is to provide information on threatened and endangered species that may be affected by an agency action. The species list fulfills the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's requirement, under section 7(c) of the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.), to provide a list of threatened and endangered species upon request for Federal actions and National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) compliance.
This office no longer provides customized cover letters or site-specific lists for projects carried out, funded or authorized by Federal agencies. We now provide a generic cover letter and species lists by county in Oregon (with the exception of Klamath County*).
1. Cover Letter: Please download a cover letter for your species list(s). This letter provides important information about Federal agency responsibilities under the Endangered Species Act.
2. Species Lists: County species lists include federally listed, proposed and candidate species and species of concern under the jurisdiction of the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service which may occur within Oregon. Select the county species list(s) for each county in the project Action Area. 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.
If you have any questions, please contact Cat Brown, 503-231-6179.
*A section of the state of Oregon falls under the jurisdiction of offices in California. This is in keeping with an ecosystem approach to managing according to geographic areas. Therefore, the yellow area of this map is managed by the Klamath Falls Fish & Wildlife Office, under the regional management of the California/Nevada Operations Office in Sacramento, California.
