The Recovery Programs produce a variety of publications for different audiences.

 Program Brochure

Our Program Brochure provides an overview of the species, the seven elements of recovery and the partners that make recovery possible.


Brieifing Books

Every year, representatives from our non-federal partners meet with executive and legislative branch leaders to discuss the importance of the programs. The Briefing Books provide a summary of information to support those meetings.


Historical Document

The four species have a long and storied history in the Colorado River basin. The Historical Document provides interviews and photos from those who knew these fish when they were common.

 Swimming Upstream

Each year, stories are collected from our field crews who spend every day recovering these species. Swimming Upstream compiles those stories for your enjoyment. These stories are posted on our News page.


Nonnative Fish Brochures

Predation by nonnative fish are the largest remaining hurdle to recover the endangered species. This brochure details the problem.

508 Compliance

 It is important to the Recovery Programs that all have the opportunity to engage with our information. All new documents adhere to published accessibility guidelines. Because this website provides an expansive history of Recovery Program documents, not all have been converted to comply with these regulations. If there is information you cannot find or are interested in having in a more accessible format, please contact us at 720-877-2354 or We are happy to provide any content requested in an accessible manner while continue to work through our historical backlog.
