ACTION: Notice of availability; opening of public comment period. AGENCY: We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), announce the availability for public review and comment of 29 draft recovery plan revisions, which update recovery criteria for 43 endangered or threatened species located in 16 States (Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas), two unincorporated territories (the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands), Canada, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, the French West Indies, and Mexico. We are updating recovery criteria to better assist in determining when an endangered species has recovered to the point that it may be reclassified as threatened, or that the protections afforded by the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (Act), are no longer necessary and the species may be removed from the Act’s protections. We request review of these draft recovery plan revisions and invite comments from local, State, Tribal, and Federal agencies, nongovernmental organizations, and the public. DATES: We must receive comments on the draft recovery plan revisions on or before July 29, 2019. ADDRESSES: Reviewing documents: If you wish to review these draft recovery plan revisions, you may obtain copies from the website addresses listed in the table in SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION. You may also request copies of the draft SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00075 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 recovery plan revisions by contacting the individuals listed in the table. Submitting comments: If you wish to comment, see the table in SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION and submit your comments by one of the following methods: 1. U.S. Mail or hand-delivery: You may submit written comments and materials to the appropriate field office mailing address for the species in which you are interested; 2.

Individuals who are hearing impaired may call the Federal Relay Service at 800–877–8339 for TTY assistance. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background In this notice, we announce for public review and comment the availability of 29 draft recovery plan revisions, which update recovery criteria for 43 endangered or threatened species located in 16 States (Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas), two unincorporated territories (the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands), Canada, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, the French West Indies, and Mexico. This group of 29 draft recovery plan revisions is part of a larger effort underway to revise up to 182 recovery plans covering up to 305 species in order to achieve the following Department of the Interior Agency Priority Performance Goal outlined in the Department’s Strategic Plan for Fiscal Years 2018–2022: ‘‘By September 30, 2019, 100 percent of all Fish and Wildlife Service recovery plans will have quantitative criteria for what constitutes a recovered species.’’ E:\FR\FM\27JNN1.SGM 27JNN1 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 124 / Thursday, June 27, 2019 / Notices The purpose of a recovery plan is to provide a roadmap for a species’ recovery, with the goal of improving its status and managing its threats to the point at which protections under the Act are no longer needed. Recovery plans must be designed so that all stakeholders and the public understand the rationale behind the recovery program, whether they were involved in writing the plan or not, and recognize their role in its implementation. We are requesting submission of any information that may help achieve (1) the necessary understanding of species’ biology, threats, and recovery needs; (2) identification of implementation issues and concerns; and (3) facilitation of more effective implementation associated with these draft revisions that revise recovery criteria for these 43 species. Recovery plans provide important guidance to the Service, States, other partners, and the general public on methods of minimizing threats to listed species and objectives against which to measure the progress towards recovery; they are guidance and not regulatory documents. A recovery plan identifies, organizes, and prioritizes recovery actions and is an important guide that ensures sound scientific decisionmaking throughout the recovery Common name Scientific name Listing status 1 process, which can take decades. Keeping recovery plans current will ensure that the species benefits through timely, partner-coordinated implementation, based on the best available information. A review of a recovery plan and its implementation, however, may show that a recovery plan is out of date or its usefulness is limited and that, therefore, the recovery plan warrants modification. The need for, and extent of, recovery plan modifications will vary considerably among recovery plans, depending on the scope and complexity of the initial plan, the structure of the document, and the involvement of stakeholders. The need for a recovery plan revision may be triggered when, among other possibilities: (1) New information has been identified such as population-level threats to the species, or previously unknown life-history traits, which necessitates new or revised recovery strategy, actions, or criteria, or revision of all three in order to maintain the adequacy of the plan; and (2) the current plan is not achieving its objectives. An amendment, a type of recovery plan revision, is more limited in scope than a full revision of the recovery plan and modifies an existing plan, rather than replacing the entire existing recovery plan. Revisions benefit Current range endangered and threatened species, our partners, and the public by incorporating the best available information on what is really needed for species’ recovery. Twenty-eight of the 29 proposed recovery plan revisions noticed in this announcement are modified with amendments that replace only a portion of those plans, while one recovery plan (Draft Revised Recovery Plan for the Kootenai River Distinct Population Segment of the White Sturgeon) is a full revision and will completely replace the existing plan. Revision of recovery plans requires public notice and comment under section 4(f)(4) of the Act, including: (1) A Federal Register notice of availability to give opportunity for public review and comment; (2) consideration of all information presented during the public comment period; and (3) approval by the Regional Director. When finalized, these recovery plan revisions will be made publicly available on the internet through our Environmental Conservation Online System (ECOS, https://ecos.fws.gov).

Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants; 29 Draft Recovery 
Plan Revisions for 43 Species in the Pacific, Southwest, and Southeast 
Regions of the United States

AGENCY: Fish and Wildlife Service, Interior.

ACTION: Notice of availability; opening of public comment period.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), announce the 
availability for public review and comment of 29 draft recovery plan 
revisions, which update recovery criteria for 43 endangered or 
threatened species located in 16 States (Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, 
California, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, 
New Mexico, North Carolina, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, and 
Texas), two unincorporated territories (the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico 
and the U.S. Virgin Islands), Canada, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, the 
French West Indies, and Mexico. We are updating recovery criteria to 
better assist in determining when an endangered species has recovered 
to the point that it may be reclassified as threatened, or that the 
protections afforded by the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended 
(Act), are no longer necessary and the species may be removed from the 
Act's protections. We request review of these draft recovery plan 
revisions and invite comments from local, State, Tribal, and Federal 
agencies, nongovernmental organizations, and the public.

DATES: We must receive comments on the draft recovery plan revisions on

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    In this notice, we announce for public review and comment the 
availability of 29 draft recovery plan revisions, which update recovery 
criteria for 43 endangered or threatened species located in 16 States 
(Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, 
Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oregon, 
South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas), two unincorporated territories 
(the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands), Canada, 
Cuba, the Dominican Republic, the French West Indies, and Mexico. This 
group of 29 draft recovery plan revisions is part of a larger effort 
underway to revise up to 182 recovery plans covering up to 305 species 
in order to achieve the following Department of the Interior Agency 
Priority Performance Goal outlined in the Department's Strategic Plan 
for Fiscal Years 2018-2022: ``By September 30, 2019, 100 percent of all 
Fish and Wildlife Service recovery plans will have quantitative 
criteria for what constitutes a recovered species.''

[[Page 30765]]

    The purpose of a recovery plan is to provide a roadmap for a 
species' recovery, with the goal of improving its status and managing 
its threats to the point at which protections under the Act are no 
longer needed. Recovery plans must be designed so that all stakeholders 
and the public understand the rationale behind the recovery program, 
whether they were involved in writing the plan or not, and recognize 
their role in its implementation. We are requesting submission of any 
information that may help achieve (1) the necessary understanding of 
species' biology, threats, and recovery needs; (2) identification of 
implementation issues and concerns; and (3) facilitation of more 
effective implementation associated with these draft revisions that 
revise recovery criteria for these 43 species.
    Recovery plans provide important guidance to the Service, States, 
other partners, and the general public on methods of minimizing threats 
to listed species and objectives against which to measure the progress 
towards recovery; they are guidance and not regulatory documents. A 
recovery plan identifies, organizes, and prioritizes recovery actions 
and is an important guide that ensures sound scientific decision-making 
throughout the recovery process, which can take decades. Keeping 
recovery plans current will ensure that the species benefits through 
timely, partner-coordinated implementation, based on the best available 
information. A review of a recovery plan and its implementation, 
however, may show that a recovery plan is out of date or its usefulness 
is limited and that, therefore, the recovery plan warrants 
modification.
    The need for, and extent of, recovery plan modifications will vary 
considerably among recovery plans, depending on the scope and 
complexity of the initial plan, the structure of the document, and the 
involvement of stakeholders. The need for a recovery plan revision may 
be triggered when, among other possibilities: (1) New information has 
been identified such as population-level threats to the species, or 
previously unknown life-history traits, which necessitates new or 
revised recovery strategy, actions, or criteria, or revision of all 
three in order to maintain the adequacy of the plan; and (2) the 
current plan is not achieving its objectives. An amendment, a type of 
recovery plan revision, is more limited in scope than a full revision 
of the recovery plan and modifies an existing plan, rather than 
replacing the entire existing recovery plan. Revisions benefit 
endangered and threatened species, our partners, and the public by 
incorporating the best available information on what is really needed 
for species' recovery. Twenty-eight of the 29 proposed recovery plan 
revisions noticed in this announcement are modified with amendments 
that replace only a portion of those plans, while one recovery plan 
(Draft Revised Recovery Plan for the Kootenai River Distinct Population 
Segment of the White Sturgeon) is a full revision and will completely 
replace the existing plan.
    Revision of recovery plans requires public notice and comment under 
section 4(f)(4) of the Act, including: (1) A Federal Register notice of 
availability to give opportunity for public review and comment; (2) 
consideration of all information presented during the public comment 
period; and (3) approval by the Regional Director. When finalized, 
these recovery plan revisions will be made publicly available on the 
internet through our Environmental Conservation Online System (ECOS, 
https://ecos.fws.gov).
