Recovery: "generally, improvement
in the status of listed species to the point at which listing is no longer
appropriate under criteria set out in section 4(a)(1) of ESA".
Planning - The
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) strives to recover Threatened and
Endangered Species. For most species, we use recovery plans to guide our
recovery actions. These plans also serve as a primary reference source for
biological information on a listed species. Recovery plans may be created
by Service biologists, contractors, or a recovery team.
