Proposed Listing and Reintroduction Rules Available

Although it won’t officially be entered into the Federal Register until Monday, the proposed rule to list wolverines as threatened under the ESA is now available in .pdf format on the Federal Register website. Accompanying this proposed rule is a second proposed rule regarding experimental-nonessential status (10j, in short form) for reintroduced populations in Colorado, Wyoming, and New Mexico.

I’m currently reading through these documents so my analysis is not yet available – I’m initially confused by the inclusion of Wyoming in the 10j rule, since there are breeding populations there, but I’ll wait to say anything until I’ve actually read the full rules. Stay tuned, and in the meantime enjoy reading them yourselves.
