Several single-species focused plans have been created under the listing process that was adopted by the FWC in 1999 and revised in 2005. These plans now guide actions in Florida for gopher tortoises, bald eagles, Florida manatees, red-cockaded woodpeckers, peregrine falcons, Miami blue butterflies and flatwoods salamanders.
The FWC is currently working on developing a management plan to address the needs of 57 state-listed species. One additional species (the Panama City crayfish) have a draft plan that is being finalized and three other state-listed species already have approved management plans (gopher tortoise, the Florida Black Bear, and Miami blue butterfly). Until management plans are completed and approved for a species, its listing status will not be changed, which means it won't be removed from the list or moved from Species of Special Concern to Threatened.
