Action for endangered species underpins all the Center’s programs. Our work has won direct Endangered Species Act protection for 440 rare animals and plants, as well as millions of acres of critical habitat to help those animals and plants survive and recover.

The clickable species lists on these pages are not comprehensive rosters of those we’ve protected; we’re adding species all the time.

If you don’t find the species you’re looking for on our lists, try our site’s search engine.
