U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service Reviewing Listing Status for Eighteen Protected Animal Species

The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (FWS) is conducting a five-year review under the Endangered Species Act for the Chiricahua leopard frog, desert pupfish, Loach minnow, Mexican spotted owl, Mount Graham red squirrel, Sonora chub, spike dace, Three Forks spring snail, Yuma clapper rail, Northern Aplomado falcon, Braken bat cave meshweaver, Clear Creek gambusia, Devils River minnow, and leopard darter to determine if circumstances still warrant current listing status. FWS published an additional notice of its intent to conduct a five-year review for the Cui-ui, Carson wandering skipper, Lahontan cutthroat trout, and Arroyo toad. FWS is accepting comments on the five-year review status for each of the above species through April 4, 2022.
