Endangered Species Status for Tricolored Bat (Draft)
Sep. 14, 2022
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), propose to list the tricolored bat (Perimyotis subflavus), as an endangered species under the ESA. This determination also serves as their 12-month finding on a petition to list the tricolored bat. After a review of the best available scientific and commercial information, they find that listing the species is warranted. Accordingly, USFWS propose to list the tricolored bat as an endangered species under the Act. If they finalize this rule as proposed, it will add this species to the List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and extend the Act's protections to the species. They find that designating critical habitat for this species is not prudent. They also are notifying the public that we have scheduled an informational meeting followed by a public hearing on the proposed rule. USFWS will accept comments received or postmarked on or before 14 November 2022.
