Recovering Threatened and Endangered Species Report to Congress (FY 2013-2014)

Short Description
May 2015
Resource Type


This report summarizes efforts to recover all domestic species under NMFS' jurisdiction from October 1, 2012, through September 30, 2014. It includes a summary table (Table 1) outlining the status of each species the Secretary has found would benefit from having a recovery plan, the status of the recovery plan, and the date the last 5-year review was completed. With this report, NMFS is embarking on a strategic approach to endangered species recovery that focuses agency resources on species for which immediate, targeted efforts are needed to stabilize their populations and prevent extinction. This report highlights the recovery stories of the eight at-risk species we've identified as most needing our attention.
