Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants; 26 Draft Recovery Plan Amendments for 42 Species Across the United States (Draft)
Jan. 31, 2019
USFWS announce the availability of 26 draft recovery plan amendments for 42 endangered and threatened species. USFWS are amending recovery criteria to better assist in determining when an endangered species has recovered to the point that it may be reclassified as threatened, or that the protections afforded by the ESA are no longer necessary and the endangered species may be removed from the Act's protections. USFWS is requesting review and comments on these draft recovery plan amendments from local, State, Tribal, and Federal agencies, nongovernmental organizations, and the public. In order to be considered, comments on the draft recovery plan amendments must be received on or before April 1, 2019.
