Download as PDF 40616 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 142 / Wednesday, July 28, 2021 / Notices We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), announce our intention to conduct a 5-year status review under the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended, for the Eskimo curlew. A 5-year status review is based on the best scientific and commercial data available at the time of the review. We are requesting submission of any new information that has become available since the last review of the species in 2016. SUMMARY: To ensure consideration, we must receive your comments and information by September 27, 2021. However, we will accept information about the species at any time. DATES: Please submit your information by one of the following methods: • Email: Daniel_Rizzolo@fws.gov; or • U.S. mail: U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Attention: Dan Rizzolo, Fisheries and Ecological Services, 101 12th Avenue, Fairbanks, Alaska 99701. For more about submitting information, see Request for Information in the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section. ADDRESSES: Dan Rizzolo, by telephone at 907–456–0227. Individuals who are hearing impaired or speech impaired may call the Federal Relay Service at 800–877–8339 for TTY assistance. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: We are initiating a 5-year status review under the ESA for the Eskimo curlew (Numenius borealis). 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 this species that has become available since the last 5-year review was conducted in 2016. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES 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 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 ESA requires us to review each listed species’ status at least once every 5 years. Further, 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 reviews, go to http://www.fws.gov/endangered/whatwe-do/recovery-overview.html. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:16 Jul 27, 2021 Jkt 253001 What information do we consider in our reviews? 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: (1) The biology of the species, including but not limited to population trends, distribution, abundance, demographics, and genetics; (2) Habitat conditions, including but not limited to amount, distribution, and suitability; (3) Conservation measures that have been implemented that benefit the species; (4) Threat status and trends in relation to the five listing factors (as defined in section 4(a)(1) of the ESA); and (5) 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 review and will also be useful in evaluating the ongoing recovery programs for the species. In the case of the Eskimo curlew, we concluded in our 2016 5-year review that the probability that the species remained extant was extremely low based on the scarcity of recent sightings and the length of time that has passed since the last sighting that was confirmed with physical evidence. We will therefore focus this 5-year review upon reported sightings or other recent information on the species’ possible existence. Thus, we ask, in particular, for information on recent sightings, including indication as to whether corroborating evidence (such as photographs) is available. Species Under Review Entity listed: Eskimo curlew (Numenius borealis). • Where listed: Wherever found. • Classification: Endangered. • Date listed (publication date for final listing rule): March 11, 1967, under the Endangered Species Preservation Act of 1966. • Federal Register citation for final listing rule: 32 FR 4001. Request for Information To ensure that a 5-year review is complete and based on the best available scientific and commercial information, we request new information from all sources. See What Information Do We Consider in Our Review? for specific criteria. If you PO 00000 Frm 00173 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 submit information, please support it with documentation such as maps, bibliographic references, methods used to gather and analyze the data, and/or copies of any pertinent publications, reports, or letters by knowledgeable sources.
