  • Description:
    A 5-year review is a periodic analysis of a species’ status conducted to ensure that the listing classification of a species as threatened or endangered on the List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants (List) (50 CFR 17.11 – 17.12) is accurate. The 5-year review is required by section 4(c)(2) of the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (ESA). To achieve this, the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) Office of Protected Resources led the 5-year review with input from NMFS regional offices and science centers. We relied on the last 5 year review (NMFS 2007), peer-reviewed publications, government and technical reports, conference papers, dissertations, and theses. Information was gathered through April 2015. The information on the southern right whale biology and habitat, threats, and conservation efforts were summarized and analyzed in light of the ESA section 4(a)(1) factors (see Section 2.3.2.1) to determine whether a reclassification or delisting may be warranted (see Section 3.0).
