74 Fed. Reg. 12878 / Vol. 74, No. 56 / Wednesday, March 25, 2009 / DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR / Fish and Wildlife Service / Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants; Initiation of 5-Year Reviews of 58 Species in California, Nevada, Arizona, and Utah; Availability of Completed 5-Year Reviews in California and Nevada
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 42 5-year reviews we completed for species in California and Nevada in mid to late Fiscal Year (FY) 2008. Reviews we completed for 16 species in early FY 2008 were indicated in our previous initiation notice published in the Federal Register on March 5, 2008. See prior ESA blawg.
