Welcome to the Endangered Species Act (ESA) Webtool!
The ESA Webtool is an online tool to streamline preparation of Biological Assessments (BAs) and the consultation process under Section 7 of the Federal Endangered Species Act for projects where the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) is the lead federal action agency.
The ESA Webtool is a tool for you. It contains many resources designed to "demystify" the BA development and review process, including library, glossary and FAQ resources, a downloadable National Biological Assessment Template with context sensitive instructions, region-specific contacts and resources, and online file cabinets for BA documentation and collaboration.
To get started, create an account by going to Login/View File Cabinet. Please see the How-To-Guide for information about using this site, the ESA Webtool Checklist for a list of BA development and submittal process tasks, and Help Resources for additional assistance. Click on your State below to visit the home page for the ESA-FHWA Area (Northern, Southern, or Western) where your State is located to learn about what’s happening in your region.
We want to know how well the ESA Webtool is working for you and how it can be improved. You can Contact Us to share your thoughts or take our survey. By knowing what you think; together we can make this the best tool that it can be.
