On June 13, 2019, the Service issued permit no. PRT–44262D to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, East Lansing, Michigan, to import the four viable wild-collected eggs from piping plover for the purpose of enhancement of the survival of the species. The eggs were salvaged so that the Service could hatch them in captivity at a captive-rearing facility in the United States for eventual release of the fledged birds into the wild.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On January 10, 2017, the Service Director approved a request from the Service Regional Director, Midwest Region, to rename the Squaw Creek National Wildlife Refuge, located in Holt County, Missouri, to Loess Bluffs National Wildlife Refuge. This decision followed a meeting that was held at the refuge on December 19, 2016, with certain interested parties to discuss suitable alternatives for the name change. The majority of the group of stakeholders and Tribal and community leaders present at the meeting concurred that recognizing the loess hills geologic formation would be the best alternative. Now, in response to congressional direction in House Report 115–765, which accompanied the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2019 (Pub. L. 116– 6), enacted February 15, 2019, the Service is opening a public process on the question of whether or not to rename the Loess Bluffs National Wildlife Refuge. Accordingly, through this Federal Register notice, we are inviting the public to comment, for a period of 15 days, on the question of whether or not to rename the Loess Bluffs National Wildlife Refuge.
