Conserving Maine's Wildlife: An All-In Effort. Conserving endangered and threatened species is an effort that extends from the MDIFW wildlife division throughout the entire Department and beyond – involving conservation partners, complementary government agencies, local businesses, and generous citizens.

An analysis of just those plant and animal groups that have been assessed comprehensively (totaling ab species), reveals that about 4, U.S. species (18% of the total) are imperiled (G1 or G2), the categories most closely reflecting listings under the Endangered Species Act.
Another 3, species (15%) are considered vulnerable (G3). These volunteers are integral to monitoring and managing rare and endangered plant species in Maine. The Official List of Endangered and Threatened Plants in Maine is a list of native vascular plant species whose populations within the state are highly vulnerable to loss.
Species on the list are typically known from a very small number of sites. The living parts of these systems are various plant and animal species. The big wildlife species, like moose and bear, are easy to identify as parts of our local wildlife fauna.
The smaller invertebrates and microfauna in soils, water, and air also play crucial roles in ecosystem processes and functioning. Rare and Endangered Plants Gallery The U.S. Botanic Garden is one of many botanic gardens worldwide that actively participate in the conservation of endangered species by maintaining live specimens in their collections, studying wild plants at risk, banking seeds of rare plants, and introducing rare plants to the horticultural trade.
