Canby's dropwort [Oxipolis canbyi]

Canby's dropwort, which has a dill fragrance, is a perennial with stems up to 3.9 feet tall and bear quill-like leaves. Its white flowers are displayed in flat-topped clusters from May through early August. the plant spreads by rhizomes and prefers moist habitats such as swamps, pineland ponds and wet pine savannahs.

Historically, this species was widely spread along the coastal plain of stretching from Delaware to Georgia. When listed, ten sites were known: one each in Burke, Lee and Sumter counties, Georgia; one in Scotland County, N. Carolina; five in the counties of Bamberg, Barnwell, Colleton and Richland, S.Carolina; and one in Queen Anne's County, Maryland.

Major factor affecting Canby's Dropwort survival is draining and ditching of wetlands for agriculture, pine plantations, pasture and road building. The lowering of the water table has allowed other plants to become established, crowding out the dropwort.

Efforts for recovery of this species are focusing on reintroduction of individuals into suitable habitats within its former range.

Wood Stork [Mycteria americana]

The wood stork is a large, long-legged wading bird with a heavy, down-curved bill. It has an unfeathered head and sports white plumage elswhere with black flight feathers and tail. It is the only true stork in the United States. It nests in the tops of cypress trees growing in water and is highly gregarious. The stork feeds primarily on small fishes it catches with its beak.

Historically, there were 60,000 wood breeding pairs along the Gulf Coast from Florida to Texas and along the Atlantic Coast from Florida to South Carolina (1930 estimate). In 1980, the number of breeding pairs was estimated at 4,800. Currently, rookeries are restricted to Florida, Georgia and South Carolina.

Major factors affecting the wood stork are disturbance of their feeding areas by urban development and predation by raccoon predation.

Primary recovery efforts focus on the development of artificial foraging areas in areas where the stork's natural froaging area has been destroyed.
