Fish and Wildlife Service Announces Recovery Permit Applications for Multiple Imperiled Species

The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service has received eight Endangered Species Act applications for recovery permits for the Topeka shiner, Southwestern willow flycatcher, Penland beardtongue, black-footed ferret, and Pallid sturgeon. All but one of the applications are renewal, rather than new, applications for ongoing activities to enhance wild populations of the specified imperiled species. The public comment period is open through December 27, 2021.
