ENDANGERED SPECIES ACT PROFILE

PROTECTION STATUS: Not listed

PETITIONED: 2009

RANGE: A five-mile stretch of Beaverdam Creek, its tributaries, and surrounding wetlands within the Beaverdam Spring Complex in Alabama

THREATS: Habitat destruction caused by urban development of wetlands, degradation of water quality due to agricultural runoff, reduction of water quantity as a result of pumping, and the introduction of invasive species

POPULATION TREND: Recent reintroductions to previously extirpated locations have been unsuccessful, and the species can now only be found in one small population.
