This report was issued by NatureServe, a nonprofit conservation group that supports and supplements species data collection and analysis efforts at the U.S. Geological Survey, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS), and the Environmental Protection Agency. This report indicates that that nearly a third of at-risk plant and animal species found on wetlands, which are geographically isolated from lakes, rivers, and streams, cannot be protected either by the nation's clean water or endangered species laws.
