Listing Actions and Species 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.

Below are species for which the FWC has received petitions since 1999. Please click the links below to find out more regarding the current status of each.
