Review of Species That Are Candidates for Listing, Annual Notification of Findings on Resubmitted Petitions, Annual Description of Progress on Listing Actions (Draft)
Jun. 27, 2023
In this candidate notice of review (CNOR), USFWS presented an updated list of species that we regard as candidates for or have proposed for addition to the Lists of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants under the ESA. This document includes their findings on resubmitted petitions and describes our progress in revising the Lists of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants (Lists) during the period 1 October 2021, through 30 September 2022. Combined with other decisions for individual species published separately from this CNOR in the past year, current number of species that are candidates for listing is 23 (as of 30 September 2022). Identification of candidate species can assist environmental planning efforts by providing advance notice of potential listings, allowing landowners and other stakeholders to take actions to alleviate threats and thereby possibly remove the need to list species as endangered or threatened. Even if they subsequently list a candidate species, the early notice provided here could result in more options for species management and recovery by prompting earlier candidate conservation measures. They will accept information on any of the species in this document at any time.
