The revised critical habitat is located in Del Norte, Humboldt, Mendocino, Sonoma, Marin, San Mateo, Santa Cruz, Monterey, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Ventura, and Los Angeles Counties, California.  This rule becomes effective on March 3, 2008.

  • According to FWS, the final rule, final economic analysis, and map of critical habitat will be available on the Internet at and
