WildEarth Guardians, Western Watersheds Project, and Caldera Action delivered a sixty-day notice of intent to sue the National Park Service, the U.S. Forest Service, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for alleged violations of the Endangered Species Act (ESA). The groups claim the continued allowance of grazing cattle in the Valles Caldera National Preserve in New Mexico violates the ESA. The notice states that at least three ESA-listed species may be adversely impacted by livestock grazing: the endangered Jemez Mountain salamander, the endangered New Mexico meadow jumping mouse, and the threatened Mexican spotted owl.
