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


The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) has issued notices indicating its intent to adopt regulations to designate critical habitat for the Sierra Nevada Yellow-Legged Frog, the Northern Distinct Population Segment of the Mountain Yellow-Legged Frog, and the Yosemite Toad. Critical habitat for these species is proposed in Inyo County and adjacent to the County along the crest of the Sierra Nevada. Primary threats to the various species identified include habitat destruction, recreation (including trout stocking), dams and reservoir diversion, livestock use (grazing), packstock use, roads, timber harvest, fire management activities, disease, climate change, and pollution.
