Preliminary review of Florida’s threatened wildlife

Black bear, brown pelican and white ibis are just three of nine animals that “do not meet listing criteria.”

After all 61 threatened species receive the scrutiny of the biological status review teams, composed of recognized experts and led by an FWC staff member, the reports will be sent for review to national and international experts for each wildlife species. However, before the Commission removes any species from the list, a management plan will have to be written and approved. One goal of the management plans is to ensure the species never reaches a high risk of extinction again, which would result in the need to re-list the species.
