This year, eight new species have been added to Ohio's list of endangered species by the Ohio Division of Wildlife. Amongst some of the newly added species are the river jewelwing and Allegheny crawfish.
Every five years the state surveys species and updates their survival status, as well as the endangered species list. Other species, such as black bears, bald eagles, and river otters, who were once on the verge of extinction in the state of Ohio, have rebounded over the past ten years.
