Several single-species focused plans have been created under the listing process that was adopted by the FWC in 1999 and revised in 2005. These plans now guide actions in Florida for gopher tortoises, bald eagles, Florida manatees, red-cockaded woodpeckers, peregrine falcons, Miami blue butterflies and flatwoods salamanders.
The FWC is currently working on developing the management plans for 60 state-listed species. Two additional species (the Panama City crayfish and the Florida black bear) have draft plans that are being finalized and two other state-listed species already have approved management plans (gopher tortoise and Miami blue butterfly). Until management plans are completed and approved for a species, its listing status will not be changed, which means it won't be removed from the list or moved from Species of Special Concern to Threatened.
