* Separate populations of a species listed both as Endangered and

Threatened are tallied once, for the endangered population only.

Those species are the argali, chimpanzee, leopard, Stellar sea lion,

gray wolf, piping plover, roseate tern, green sea turtle, saltwater

crocodile, and olive ridley sea turtle. For the purposes of the

Endangered Species Act, the term “species” can mean a species,

subspecies, or distinct vertebrate population. Several entries also

represent entire genera or even families.

** There are 530 approved recovery plans. Some recovery plans cover

more than one species, and a few species have separate plans

covering different parts of their ranges. Recovery plans are drawn up

only for listed species that occur in the United States.

*** Nine animal species have dual status in the U.S.
