Lynx Critical Habitat Revisited
New opportunity for comment
The Nov. 2006 decision
of the US Fish & Wildlife Service (USFWS) to ignore its own proposal
for designating critical habitat for the Canada lynx was tainted by political
interference. The rule that was adopted only designated a small
amount of critical habitat and only in national parks in the West. The
political appointee who influenced this and other endangered species decisions
has resigned. Under court order, the USFWS has submitted a new proposed
rule for critical habitat for the lynx. The new proposed rule will
add back the lands previously proposed for critical habitat and will include
all of the 6.4 million acres of critical habitat originally proposed in
the Maine Woods. Read a news
article about the USFWS newly proposed lynx rule.
Public comments will be accepted by the USFWS until April
28, 2008. Get information
about submitting public comments, with a link to the full, proposed
RESTORE: The North Woods, in collaboration with a number of groups around
the country, submitted a notice of intent to sue to overturn the Nov.
2006 rule. The courts then revisited previous rulings about the
lynx and forced USFWS to speed up reconsideration of a new critical habitat
rule for lynx.
