FWS announces 5-year status reviews
73 Fed. Reg. 11945 (Mar. 5, 2008)(Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants; Initiation of 5-Year Reviews of 58 Species in California and Nevada; Availability of Completed 5-Year Reviews in California, Nevada and Southern Oregon) click here for pdf
SUMMARY: We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, initiate 5-year reviews for 58 species under the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (Act). We request any new information on these species that may have a bearing on their classification as endangered or threatened (see Table 1 below). Based on the results of these 5-year reviews, we will make a finding on whether these species are properly classified under the Act. We also indicate in this notice the 5-year reviews we completed for species in California, Nevada and southern Oregon in FY 2007 and early FY 2008.
