Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants; Annual Notice of Findings on Resubmitted Petitions for Foreign Species; Annual Description of Progress on Listing Actions
Document Number: 2011-10286
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2011-05-03
Agency: Fish and Wildlife Service, Department of the Interior
In this notice of review, we announce our annual petition findings for foreign species, as required under section 4(b)(3)(C)(i) of the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended. When, in response to a petition, we find that listing a species is warranted but precluded by higher priority listing actions, we must review the status of the species each year until we publish a proposed rule or make a determination that listing is not warranted. These subsequent status reviews and the accompanying 12-month findings are referred to as ``resubmitted'' petition findings. Information contained in this notice describes our status review of 20 foreign taxa that were the subject of previous warranted-but- precluded findings, most recently summarized in our 2009 Notice of Review published on August 12, 2009 (74 FR 40540). Based on our current review, we find that 20 species continue to warrant listing, but their listing remains precluded by higher priority listing actions. With this annual notice of review (ANOR), we are requesting additional information for the 20 taxa whose listings that remain warranted but precluded by higher priority listing actions. We will consider this information in preparing listing documents and future resubmitted petition findings for these 20 taxa. This information will also help us to monitor the status of the taxa and conserve them.
