Collections should represent at least 75 percent of the genetic diversity, as measured by the number of unique alleles, represented in each recovery unit. To help meet these criteria, the draft recovery plan identifies recovery actions for each criteria.

AGENCY: Fish and Wildlife Service, Interior.

ACTION: Notice of initiation of reviews; request for information.

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

SUMMARY: We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, are initiating 5-year 
status reviews of 7 species under the Endangered Species Act of 1973, 
as amended. A 5-year status review is based on the best scientific and 
commercial data available at the time of the review; therefore, we are 
requesting submission of any new information on these species that has 
become available since the last review of the species.

DATES: To ensure consideration in our reviews, we are requesting 
submission of new information no later than March 15, 2021. However, we 
will continue to accept new information about any listed species at any 
time.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For general information, contact Craig 
Hansen, Regional Recovery Coordinator, by phone at 303-236-4748 or by 
email at [email protected]. Individuals who are hearing impaired or 
speech impaired may call the Federal Relay Service at 800-877-8339 for 
TTY assistance. For information on a particular species, contact the 
appropriate person or office listed in the table in the SUPPLEMENTARY 
INFORMATION section.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Why do we conduct 5-year status 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. Our regulations at 50 CFR 424.21 require that we publish 
a notice in the Federal Register announcing those species under active 
review. For additional information about 5-year status reviews, go to 
http://www.fws.gov/endangered/what-we-do/recovery-overview.html, scroll 
down to ``Learn More about 5-Year Status Reviews,'' and click on our 
factsheet.

What information do we consider in our review?

    A 5-year status review considers all new information available at 
the time of the review. In conducting these reviews, we consider the 
best scientific and commercial data that have become available since 
the listing determination or most recent status review, such as:
    (A) Species biology, including but not limited to population 
trends, distribution, abundance, demographics, and genetics;
    (B) Habitat conditions, including but not limited to amount, 
distribution, and suitability;
    (C) Conservation measures that have been implemented that benefit 
the species;
    (D) Threat status and trends in relation to the five listing 
factors (as defined in section 4(a)(1) of the Act); and
    (E) Other new information, data, or corrections, including but not 
limited to taxonomic or nomenclatural changes, identification of 
erroneous information contained in the List, and improved analytical 
methods.
    Any new information will be considered during the 5-year status 
review and will also be useful in evaluating the ongoing recovery 
programs for the species.

Which species are under review?

    This notice announces our active review of the seven species listed 
in the table below.
