Listing Actions and Evaluation Requests
The Commission updated the management system for conserving threatened species in September 2010. The system includes a process for accepting listing action requests from the public for species that may be at risk of extinction.
People requesting the Commission list or remove a species from the state-designated Threatened species list must follow the listing process.
