ACTION: Notice of initiation of review/ reviews; request for information. AGENCY: We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, are initiating 5-year status reviews under the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (Act), of nine species. We conduct these reviews to ensure that our classification of each species on the Lists of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants as threatened or endangered is accurate. A 5-year review assesses the best scientific and commercial data SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00144 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 available at the time of the review. We are requesting any information that has become available since our original listing of each of these species. Based on review results, we will determine whether we should change the listing status of any of these species. DATES: To ensure consideration, please send your written information by August 8, 2011. ADDRESSES: For how and where to send information, see ‘‘VIII., Contacts’’ near end of SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mary Parkin, by U.S. mail at U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Northeast Region, 300 Westgate Center Drive, Hadley, Massachusetts 01035; by telephone at 617–417–3331; or by e-mail at mary_parkin@fws.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Why do we conduct 5–year reviews? Under the Act (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.), we maintain Lists of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants (which we collectively refer to as the List) in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) at 50 CFR 17.11 (for animals) and 17.12 (for plants). Section 4(c)(2)(A) of the Act requires us to review each listed species’ status at least once every 5 years. Then, under section 4(c)(2)(B), we determine whether to remove any species from the List (delist), to reclassify it from endangered to threatened, or to reclassify it from threatened to endangered. Any change in Federal classification requires a separate rulemaking process. In classifying, we use the following definitions, from 50 CFR 424.02: (A) Species includes any species or subspecies of fish, wildlife, or plant, and any distinct population segment of any species of vertebrate, that interbreeds when mature; (B) Endangered species means any species that is in danger of extinction throughout all or a significant portion of its range; and (C) Threatened species means any species that is likely to become an endangered species within the foreseeable future throughout all or a significant portion of its range. We must support delisting by the best scientific and commercial data available, and only consider delisting if data substantiates that the species is neither endangered nor threatened for one or more of the following reasons (50 CFR 424.11(d)): (A) The species is considered extinct; (B) The species is considered to be recovered; or E:\FR\FM\08JNN1.SGM 08JNN1
