No Special Status

A species with no special status is one that is not listed as threatened, endangered, and is not being considered for listing as threatened or endangered. Many species that are listed as “no special status” are fairly common or have stable population numbers. However, many species with “no status” may be experiencing problems that have not yet been recognized with an official conservation listing.
