Several fish, wildlife, and rare plant species are endemic to the watershed, or a significant portion of their population resides in the watershed. The highest profile species include the Modoc sucker, Goose Lake redband, willow flycatcher, greater sandhill crane, northern goshawk, sage grouse and spotted owl. However, several hundred more common species are dependent on the diversity of natural and cultivated habitats found in the watershed. Land managers face many challenges in providing species protection and preservation while allowing consumptive resource uses.
