Working to conserve Nebraska's ESA species

August 2023 - December 2032


Participating Agencies

Nebraska is home to numerous federally threatened and endangered species. The Endangered Species Act of 1973 mandates protection of all individuals of these species, including the habitats on which they depend. The project is a collaboration of researchers and natural resource managers across multiple agencies, including the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission. This project enables quick responses to local (within Nebraska) concerns that arise concerning federal threatened or endangered species.
