Map: U.S. Threatened and Endangered Species by County

For every county in the United States, the map below shows information on all the animals and plants protected under the U.S. Endangered Species Act as threatened or endangered.

How to Use It:

To see the number of federally protected species in a given county, zoom in on the map until the county boundaries appear and click on a point within the county; then click the arrow on the right in the popup window to go to a table. From there, to see a list of all the species in that county, click on the arrow to the right on the "Species List" line. From there, you can see information about each species by clicking the arrow on the line with its name.

Or explore with a full screen using the web app. (This is your best option for counties with long lists.)
