Information to describe these records has been gathered from museums, institutions and personal collections then entered into the Pennsylvania Natural Diversity Inventory(PNDI). In some cases, current field surveys have found these historically known locations to have been lost to habitat destruction. Although historical records may not completely reflect the known range of a particular species, they are the best documentation available to estimate the former distribution. Red areas represent species locations that are known to exist today. Many of these sites were found based on directions given in historical records, others were found by looking for species in appropriate habitats. Species ranges were identified using the PNDI information system.

    What Are Endangered and Threatened Species?
    A century ago, a bird called the passenger pigeon lived in North America. There were so many passenger pigeons that people often saw great flocks of them flying overhead containing thousands, even millions, of birds. Today, there is not a single one left. What happened?
    The passenger pigeon became extinct . All living passenger pigeons disappeared from the earth entirely. The passenger pigeon became extinct for two reasons. First, the forests where it lived were cut down to make way for farms and cities. Second, many pigeons were shot for sport and because they were good to eat. At that time, there were no hunting laws to protect endangered species like there are now.
    The passenger pigeon is one of the many plants and animals that once lived on our planet and have become extinct. For example, dinosaurs, mammoths, and saber-toothed tigers all became extinct long ago. More recently, the dodo bird and the sea mink also have disappeared. Extinction has been going on since life began on earth. But today, extinction is happening faster than ever before.

    100 North Bismarck Expressway
    Bismarck, North Dakota 58501-5095 This colored guide is designed to provide any reader a quick and meaningful method of identifying and learning about the federally listed threatened and endangered species found in North Dakota. The Endangered Species Act, which was passed by Congress in 1973, provided a means whereby species in danger of extinction could be conserved. This Act included the preservation of ecosystems where endangered species were found and was intended to recover populations of species to a point where they could be removed from this list. Endangered species are those species which are in danger of extinction throughout all or a significant portion of their range. Threatened species are those species likely to become endangered in the future. All wildlife are important because they are part of a large web of life in which species are dependent on one another for existence. For example, many plants have evolved to be pollinated by a specific butterfly. If that species of butterfly would become extinct, the plant would also become extinct. Wild species also act as environmental monitors, add to genetic diversity, and are used commercially at a value of about 40 billion dollars a year to make medicines. Finally, the number of people who enjoy watching wildlife grows every year. By causing the extinction of species today, we are depriving future generations of the experiences and values that a species may have provided.

    Extinct, Endangered and Threatened Species
    Many species of animals are disappearing from our planet. Extinct means that the entire species has died out and can never return. Endangered animals are those in immediate danger of becoming extinct. Threatened species are likely to become endangered in the future. There are 1,072 endangered and threatened species in the world. The list includes:
    • 342 species of mammals, such as the red wolf, the right whale and the mountain gorilla 273 species of birds, such as the California condor, the whooping crane and the northern spotted owl 126 species of fish, such as coho salmon 115 species of reptiles, such as the green sea turtle

A species can be considered endangered on one list, threatened on another list and not appear at all on a different list.

    Endangered Species Recovery Appropriations Congressional funding authorizations to support the Service's recovery program have increased since the 1988 amendments. In FY 1993 and FY 1994, recovery represented approximately 31 percent of the Service's total endangered species budget. Species with specific recovery activities funded as a result of Congressional directives, or activities funded as a Service directive, are presented in Table 3. These directives represented 55 percent and 35 percent of the total recovery appropriation in FY 1993 and FY 1994, respectively. Directives represent a substantial portion of the money available for implementing recovery and limit the money remaining for recovery actions benefitting other species.

    Table of Contents Critter Chronicles Endangered and Threatened Species of North Dakota Endangered or threatened? Which is it? You've probably heard or read about endangered or threatened species before. But what do these terms really mean? And how did these classifications get started? In 1973 Congress passed the Endangered Species Act which protects wildlife species that are facing extinction. If a species population was in a dramatic decline throughout its breeding and nesting range, a classification of endangered or threatened was given. Federal agencies like U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service assumed the responsibility of protecting these wildlife species. The descriptions for each classification is explained below. Endangered: Any species that is in danger of becoming extinct (gone forever). Threatened: Any species that is likely to become endangered in the future. Extinct: Species that no longer exist; gone forever.

    All living things from mammals to fish to insects to plants are connected and depend upon each other for survival. The removal or extinction of one species affects our entire environment. Since the pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock in 1620, more than 500 species have become extinct in the United States alone. photo of bald eagle by Lee Emery, USFWS Here is a list of endangered species in the Northeast United States, including the Chesapeake Bay Watershed. Students and teachers can find an excellent endangered species resource here Home Endangered means that a species is in immediate danger of becoming extinct and needs protection to survive. Threatened means that a species is likely to become endangered if it is not protected. Plants and animals become endangered or threatened due to:
    • loss of homes or habitat
      illegal or unregulated hunting or collection
      competition with other non-native species
    It is the job of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to protect threatened and endangered species and their habitats and restore these species to a secure status.

    Threatened and Endangered Species The Endangered Species Act
    The Endangered Species Act (ESA) is a federal law designed to protect species in danger of extinction. The stated purposes of the Endangered Species Act are to "provide a means whereby the ecosystems upon which endangered species and threatened species depend may be conserved, (and) to provide a program for (their) conservation." Once a species is listed as endangered or threatened it is protected by a number of rules and regulations. Under the ESA, it is illegal to "harass, harm, pursue, hunt, shoot, wound, kill, trap, capture, collect, or attempt to engage in any such conduct" with regard to an endangered or threatened species. In addition, the body parts and products of endangered or threatened species cannot be imported, exported, or sold. Threatened species have low or declining population numbers. Their populations are facing serious problems. The Endangered Species Act of 1973 defines a threatened species as one that is likely to become an endangered species within the foreseeable future throughout all or a significant portion of its range if factors contributing to their population decline or habitat degradation or loss continue. Endangered species are still alive today but exist in numbers so low or are decreasing so rapidly that they are in immediate danger of extinction. The Endangered Species Act of 1973 defines an
