Developed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), the guidance describes a crediting framework for Federal agencies in carrying out recovery measures for threatened and endangered species. Under the guidance, Federal agencies may show how adverse effects of agency activities to a listed species are offset by beneficial effects of actions taken elsewhere for that species. The combined effects of the adverse and beneficial actions must provide a net benefit to the recovery of the species.
