Pacific Southwest Region

Threatened and Endangered Species

Under the Endangered Species Act, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) is required to conduct a status review of listed species at least once every 5 years. On the basis of these reviews, we recommend whether or not any species should be removed from the list (delisted), reclassified from endangered to threatened (downlisted), reclassified from threatened to endangered (uplisted), or have no change in status.

If you wish to locate Federal Register documents announcing the initiation and completion of 5-year reviews for the Pacific Southwest Region (California, Nevada, and Klamath Basin - Region 8), you may find them here.

Or, if a table with all listed plants and animals within Region 8 containing species-specific information and links to documents, including five-year reviews works better for you, that information may be found on the Service's Species Profile page. Click on the name of a species located on this site and you will be taken to that species' profile page.

Lastly, if you wish to locate completed 5-Year Reviews from FY 2007 - 2014 that are broken down by Fish and Wildlife Office within Region 8, please visit our Endangered Species Act Review Lists.
