The Comprehensive Wildlife Conservation Strategy (CWCS) Species Team created a list of species of greatest conservation need for Arkansas.
Some species were chosen for inclusion on the list because they are rare, some because their populations are in decline or, in some cases, because not enough is known to determine their taxonomic, life history or conservation status
Inclusion on the list of Species of Greatest Conservation Need (SGCN) does not confer any special or regulatory status as federal listing as an endangered or threatened species does.
