FWS to Prepare Supplemental EIS Regarding Experimental Mexican Wolf Population

The Fish and Wildlife Service has announced it will prepare a draft environmental impact statement supplement in conjunction with a proposed rule to revise the experimental population of the Mexican wolf. This agency action is in response to a ruling by a federal court that the agency’s 2015 rule failed to further long-term conservation of the species and inappropriately determined that the species was nonessential. The agency will accept public comments on this issue until June 15, 2020.
