Ensure Clear, Quantitative Criteria for Threatened and Endangered Species Recovery Plans

Goal Leaders: Greg Sheehan, Acting Director, Fish and Wildlife Service

Gary Frazer, Assistant Director, Ecological Services, Fish and Wildlife Service

Goal Statement: Clarity for when a threatened or endangered species can be downlisted or delisted is important to ensuring that only the appropriate actions are taken to help the species without unnecessary impacts. By September 30, 2019, 100% of all Fish and Wildlife Service recovery plans will have quantitative criteria for what constitutes a recovered species.

Implementation Action Plans will be available with the Q1 FY 2018 performance update.
