Abstract: In May 2015, NOAA Fisheries released the Recovering Threatened
and Endangered Species FY 2013-2014 Report to Congress and launched
'Species in the Spotlight', an initiative focused on stabilizing
populations of eight endangered species at very high risk of extinction.
With this effort we are marshaling our resources to turn around the decline
towards extinction of these eight species by focusing efforts to  stabilize
their populations by 2020 and put them on the road to recovery.  In just
one year, the initiative has resulted in benefits for the Spotlight
Species. Examples of success include California's commitment to extend
their Fisheries Restoration Grants Program to the Central Valley to support
projects that may benefit Sacramento Winter-Run Chinook and an increase in
funding from Maine for culvert removals to increase passage for fish,
including Atlantic Salmon.
