              Florida's Imperiled Species

              Florida’s imperiled species are fish and wildlife species that meet criteria to be listed as federally endangered, federally threatened, state threatened or Species of Special Concern. The current listing status of all of Florida's?federal and state listed species is found in?Florida's Endangered and Threatened Species List.? While the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) has primary responsibility for Florida species that are federally endangered or threatened, like the?sand skink?or the?Florida scrub-jay, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) works in partnership with USFWS to help conserve these species.?

              FWC developed the Imperiled Species Management Plan to address the needs of state listed species that did not already have a management plan or specific program in place. These species also have Commission approved Species Conservation Measures and Permitting Guidelines that have been developed to clarify what is needed for conservation and permitting of these species.?
