Federal List of Endangered and Threatened Species: Recovery Plans

The biologists at the United States Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) are the people who compile all of the known data about a species, which is used to determine if the species should be listed as Endangered or Threatened, or not at all, on the Federal List of Endangered and Threatened Species. They write the recovery plans and subsequent status reviews for getting the species back to sustainable population levels. These plans describe the current known locations, ranges, and population sizes of the species at the known locations. In addition, the plans outline the threats that the species face at local sites and across their range.
