Species Action Plans

Species Action Plans are a key component of Florida’s Imperiled Species Management Plan. Species Action Plans describe the conservation actions necessary to minimize impacts of known threats, improve habitat conditions, and streamline efforts to conserve the species. Numerous stakeholders partner with FWC staff to develop Species Action Plans to address species-specific needs identified through Biological Status Review Reports. Implementation of the Species Action Plans is ongoing, and involves both FWC and partner effort.

All Species Action Plans have accompanying Species Conservation Measures and Permitting Guidelines, which contain species-specific biological descriptions, technical assistance for conservation practices, strategies to avoid take of the species, and permitting options when take will occur.
