Threatened And Endangered Species Conservation

An endangered species is one that is in danger of extinction throughout all or a significant portion of its range, and a threatened species is one that is likely to become endangered in the foreseeable future throughout all or a significant portion of its range. There are several ways that federally listed species can be protected or even enhanced. Private landowners can develop a Habitat Conservation Plan (HCP) designed to minimize and mitigate for loss associated with incidental take (allowed loss) of a threatened or endangered species. Government agencies can redesign projects to minimize or reduce impacts to listed species, they can move significant species to new areas, or they can create protective areas within project boundaries designed to sustain the organisms.
