Species Action Plans

Species Action Plans

The Species Action Plans (SAPs), which describe individual species threats and conservation needs, have undergone extensive internal and external review. After more than a year of hard work, all 49 Final Draft Final Species Action Plans have been completed and are available for review. These plans are a critical part of achieving the objectives in the Imperiled Species Management Plan.  This effort has involved more than 100 different staff from many divisions in FWC as well as input from partners and stakeholders.
