State of Alaska Special Status Species
Species of Special Concern
As of August 15, 2011, the Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G) no longer maintains a Species of Special Concern list. The list has not been reviewed and revised since 1998 and is no longer considered valid. Since that time, the Department has completed Alaska's Wildlife Action Plan, which is supported through the State Wildlife Grant program. See the Wildlife Action Plan to view the species-focused plan.
ADF&G currently uses the Alaska Wildlife Action Plan to assess the needs of species with conservation concerns, and to prioritize conservation actions and research.
