FWS Announces Plan to Reintroduce Birds that are Extinct in the Wild

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) proposes to introduce the Guam kingfisher on Palmyra Atoll as an experimental population under the Endangered Species Act. The bird has been extinct in the wild for more than three decades and currently exists only in captivity. FWS is accepting public comments on the proposal through September 30, 2022.
