The Middle Rio Grande Endangered Species Collaborative Program (MRGESCP or Program) is a partnership of 16 federal, state, tribal, local, and non-profit signatory agencies and organizations working together to support the recovery of endangered species in the Middle Rio Grande.


The MRGESCP provides a collaborative forum to support scientific analysis and implementation of adaptive management to the benefit and recovery of the listed species pursuant to the Endangered Species Act within the Program Area, and to protect existing and future water uses while complying with applicable state, federal and tribal laws, rules and regulations.
