Designation of Critical Habitat for Florida Bonneted Bat (Draft)
Jun. 10, 2020
USFWS proposes to designate critical habitat for the Florida bonneted bat (Eumops floridanus) under the ESA. Approximately 598,261 hectares (ha) (1,478,333 acres (ac)) in portions of 10 Florida counties fall within the boundaries of the proposed critical habitat designation. If finalized this rule as proposed, would extend the ESA protections to this species' critical habitat.
USFWS will accept comments on the proposed rule or draft economic analysis that are received or postmarked on or before 10 August 2020.
