Georgetown Salamander - Conservation - Listing Process

Listing Process

In 2011 several groups including WildEarth Guardians and the Center for Biological Diversity sued the US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) on the grounds that the Service had not met deadlines to decide on listings for a number of candidate species including the Georgetown salamander. Settlement of the case resulted in a commitment from USFWS to review the candidate species by 2016. In 2011, the USFWS announced that Eurycea naufragia, along with three other Eurycea species found in central Texas (Eurycea chisholmensis, Eurycea tonkawae, and Eurycea waterlooensis) would undergo the formal review for possible listing as an endangered species. This process is currently in progress.
