Reclassification of Eugenia woodburyana as Threatened (Draft)
Oct. 21, 2020
USFWS proposes to reclassify the plant Eugenia woodburyana (no common name) from an endangered species to a threatened species under the ESA, due to improvements in the species' status since the original listing in 1994. This proposed action is based on a thorough review of the best available scientific and commercial information, which indicates that E. woodburyana is not currently in danger of extinction throughout all or a significant portion of its range, but it is likely to become so within the foreseeable future. If this proposal is finalized, E. woodburyana would remain protected as a threatened species under the Act. USFWS seek information, data, and comments from the public on this proposal. USFWS will accept comments received or postmarked on or before 21 December 2020. POC is Edwin Muñiz, Field Supervisor, USFWS, Caribbean Ecological Services Field Office, P.O.
