Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants; 90-Day Findings for Three Species (Draft)
Mar. 25, 2021
USFWS announced 90-day findings on three petitions to add species to the Lists of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants under the ESA. Based on their review, they find that the petitions present substantial scientific or commercial information indicating that the petitioned actions may be warranted. Therefore, with the publication of this document, USFWS announce that we plan to initiate status reviews of the Rio Grande shiner (Notropis jemezanus), Shasta snow-wreath (Neviusia cliftonii), and threecorner milkvetch (Astragalus geyeri var. triquetrus) to determine whether the petitioned actions are warranted. To ensure that the status reviews are comprehensive, we are requesting scientific and commercial data and other information regarding the species and factors that may affect their status. Based on the status reviews, we will issue 12-month petition findings, which will address whether or not the petitioned actions are warranted, in accordance with the Act. These findings were made on 24 March 2021.
