The Delaware Native Species Commission was formed by the Delaware General Assembly to reverse the trend of decline and extinction of Delaware’s local plant and animal native species, implement the recommendations of the Statewide Ecological Extinction Task Force and provide expertise and assistance to state and local lawmakers, policy makers, educators and other stakeholders. The commission comprises 19 members, reflecting a balance of environmental professionals, government and business stakeholders, with DNREC providing staff support.
