In 1967, the Delmarva Fox Squirrel was listed as endangered and a reintroduction program was started. These efforts have resulted in a growth of population, and the recovery team has introduced populations throughout the Eastern Shore of Maryland and parts of Virginia, Delaware, and Pennsylvania. Between 1969 and 1971, thirty of this species were relocated to Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge in Virginia and into habitat surrounding the historic Assateague Lighthouse. That population now numbers 300.
