Texas had 669 aquatic and terrestrial wildlife species classified as wildlife species of greatest conservation need (GCN). Of these 669 GCN, 272 are insects, 163 are birds, 104 are fish, 53 are mammals, 21 are mussels, 19 are reptiles, 15 are amphibians, 11 are snails and 11 are crayfish. Problems or threats to the GCN species populations in Texas are commercial and industrial development, landfill construction or operation, dams, road construction, urban development, water diversion, municipal and industrial point source, commercial harvest, conversion of riparian forests, excessive non-commercial harvest or collection, channel maintenance and confined animal operations. Other problems or threats to GCN species are crop production practices, excessive groundwater withdrawal, fire suppression, management of or for certain species, channel alteration, exotic species, parasites, pathogens, recreation, grazing, predation, forestry activities and resource extraction. The Texas Comprehensive Wildlife Conservation Strategy has addressed these problems or threats to the GCN species population with wildlife conservation actions.
