The first step in the recovery planning process is the development of a recovery outline. Recovery outlines are usually prepared within 90 days of when a species is listed. A recovery outline serves as interim guidance to direct conservation efforts until a draft recovery plan is completed, and is intended primarily for internal use by the Service. Recovery outlines summarize the state of our knowledge of the species, identify high priority recovery actions that may be undertaken immediately, and lay out the strategy and timing for the development of the recovery plan.
