ACTION: Notice of initiation of reviews; request for information. AGENCY: We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, are initiating 5-year status reviews for 37 species under the Endangered Species Act, as amended. A 5-year review is an assessment of the best scientific and commercial data available at the time of the review. We are requesting submission of any such information that has become available since the previous status review for each species. DATES: To allow us adequate time to conduct these reviews, we must receive your comments or information on or before August 23, 2021.

SUMMARY: E:\FR\FM\23JNN1.SGM 23JNN1 32966 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 118 / Wednesday, June 23, 2021 / Notices Species-Specific Information and Submission of Comments: Please refer to Request for New Information under SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION. Individuals who are hearing impaired or speech impaired may call the Federal Relay Service at 1–800–877–8339 for TTY assistance. We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, are initiating 5-year status reviews under the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (ESA; 16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.), for 17 plant and 20 animal species. A 5year 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 such information that has become available since the last review for the species, particularly information on the status, threats, and recovery of the species that may have become available. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Common name/ scientific name Why do we conduct 5-year reviews? Under the ESA, we maintain Lists of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants (which we collectively refer to as the List) in title 50 of the Code of Federal Regulations at 50 CFR 17.11(h) (for wildlife) and 50 CFR 17.12(h) (for plants). Listed wildlife and plants can also be found at: http://ecos.fws.gov/ tess_public/pub/listedAnimals.jsp and http://ecos.fws.gov/tess_public/pub/ listedPlants.jsp, respectively. Section 4(c)(2)(A) of the ESA 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 species under active review. On the basis of such reviews under section 4(c) (2)(B), we determine whether any species should be removed from the list (i.e., delisted) or reclassified from endangered to threatened or from threatened to Contact person, email, phone Status (endangered or threatened) States where the species is known to occur endangered (16 U.S.C. 1533(c)(2)(B)). Using the best scientific and commercial data available, we will consider a species for delisting if the data substantiate that the species is neither endangered nor threatened for one or more of the following reasons: (1) The species is considered extinct; (2) the species is considered to be recovered; and/or (3) the original data available when the species was listed, or the interpretation of such data, were in error. Any change in Federal classification would require a separate rulemaking process. For additional information about 5-year reviews, refer to our fact sheet at http://www.fws.gov/ endangered/what-we-do/recoveryoverview.html. Which species are under review?

Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants; Initiation of 5-
Year Status Reviews for 37 Southeastern Species

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 for 37 species under the Endangered Species Act, as 
amended. A 5-year review is an assessment of the best scientific and 
commercial data available at the time of the review. We are requesting 
submission of any such information that has become available since the 
previous status review for each species.

DATES: To allow us adequate time to conduct these reviews, we must

However, we will continue to accept new information about any listed 
species at any time.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, are 
initiating 5-year status reviews under the Endangered Species Act of 
1973, as amended (ESA; 16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.), for 17 plant and 20 
animal species. 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 such information that has become 
available since the last review for the species, particularly 
information on the status, threats, and recovery of the species that 
may have become available.

Why do we conduct 5-year reviews?

    Under the ESA, we maintain Lists of Endangered and Threatened 
Wildlife and Plants (which we collectively refer to as the List) in 
title 50 of the Code of Federal Regulations at 50 CFR 17.11(h) (for 
wildlife) and 50 CFR 17.12(h) (for plants). Listed wildlife and plants 
can also be found at: http://ecos.fws.gov/tess_public/pub/listedAnimals.jsp and http://ecos.fws.gov/tess_public/pub/listedPlants.jsp, respectively. Section 4(c)(2)(A) of the ESA 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 species under active review. On the 
basis of such reviews under section 4(c) (2)(B), we determine whether 
any species should be removed from the list (i.e., delisted) or 
reclassified from endangered to threatened or from threatened to 
endangered (16 U.S.C. 1533(c)(2)(B)). Using the best scientific and 
commercial data available, we will consider a species for delisting if 
the data substantiate that the species is neither endangered nor 
threatened for one or more of the following reasons: (1) The species is 
considered extinct; (2) the species is considered to be recovered; and/
or (3) the original data available when the species was listed, or the 
interpretation of such data, were in error. Any change in Federal 
classification would require a separate rulemaking process. For 
additional information about 5-year reviews, refer to our fact sheet at 
http://www.fws.gov/endangered/what-we-do/recovery-overview.html.

What information do we consider in our 5-year reviews?

    A 5-year review considers all new information available at the time 
of the review. In conducting the review, we consider the best 
scientific and commercial data that have become available since the 
most recent status review. We are seeking new information specifically 
regarding:
    (1) Species biology, including but not limited to life history and 
habitat requirements and impact tolerance thresholds;
    (2) Historical and current population conditions, including but not 
limited to population abundance, trends, distribution, demographics, 
and genetics;
    (3) Historical and current habitat conditions, including but not 
limited to amount, distribution, and suitability;
    (4) Historical and current threats, threat trends, and threat 
projections in relation to the five listing factors (as defined in 
section 4(a)(1) of the ESA);
    (5) Conservation measures for the species that have been 
implemented or are planned; and
    (6) 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 received will be considered during the 5-year 
review and ongoing recovery programs for the species.
