ESPB Petition Process and Forms for Recommending Changes to the List
The ESPB has established a petition process and forms for anyone wishing to make recommendations for changes to the Illinois List of Endangered and Threatened Species – adding a species, removing a species, or changing the listed status of a species.  The process and forms are intended to provide a standardized, transparent, and equally accessible means for anyone to petition the ESPB about changes to the Illinois List.
