U.S. Fish & Wildlife - Proposal to designate critical habitat for the Sierra Nevada Yellow-Legged Frog

 

On April 29th, 2014, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) published the final rule listing the Sierra Nevada Yellow-Legged Frog and the Northern Distinct Population Segment of the Mountain Yellow-Legged Frog as endangered, and the Yosemite Toad as threatened. Critical habitat for these species is proposed in Inyo County and adjacent to the County along the crest of the Sierra Nevada.  The critical habitat designation is anticipated to be finalized in early 2015.

Primary threats to the various species identified include disease, introduced non-native species (including trout stocking), dams and reservoir diversion, livestock use (grazing), packstock use, roads, timber harvest, fire management activities, climate change, and pollution.

The public comment period for the listing and designation of critical habitat has closed. The final rule will become efffective on June 30, 2014.  More information can be found at the USFWS website: USFWS Public Advisory
