Meet the Wildlife

Over 1,600 fish, wildlife and plants are already federally protected as threatened or endangered, and about 500 more are at risk of needing that protection.

Collaboration with state and federal agencies, companies, NGOs, researchers and many other partners gathering and assessing the best available data, and implementing conservation actions, has helped more than 180 at-risk plants and animals in the Eastern United States that were determined to not need federal protection.
