Reclassification of Eugenia woodburyana from Endangered to Threatened with a Section 4(d) Rule (Final)
Dec. 6, 2022
USFWS are reclassifying (downlisting) 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 its original listing in 1994. This 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. They are also finalizing a rule issued under section 4(d) of the Act to provide measures that are necessary and advisable for the conservation of E. woodburyana. This rule is effective 3 January 2023. POC is Edwin Muñiz, Field Supervisor, Caribbean Ecological Services Field Office, USFWS, P.O.
