Endangered Species of Montana

The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (Service) is responsible for implementing the Endangered Species Act to protect and recover listed species of plants and animals native to the United States and its territories.  The Service consults on actions authorized, funded or carried out by other federal agencies to determine the impacts of an action on listed species.  This includes coordination with federal, state, local and private entities in the preservation of listed species.  The Service also works with other scientists to develop recovery plans in order to identify actions necessary to conserve listed species and increase their numbers.
