How cool is this? The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has created a new interactive feature on their web site where you can track endangered species by state. You just select your location and click, and you get a complete listing of all the animals listed under the Endangered Species Act as well as more information about those animals, a map showing their habitats and where their populations exist, and lots more fascinating facts.
If you select Indiana, for example, you'll find information on two types of bats, four types of plants, two species of butterflies, and the Great Lakes piping plover, among many other animals. It details recovery plans, critical habitat, and just loads of other vital information.
