→ Draft Recovery Plan for Texas Coastal Bend Shortgrass Prairie Species

Comments Close:

The US Fish and Wildlife Service announce the availability of the draft Texas Coastal Bend Shortgrass Prairie Multi-Species Recovery Plan, which includes the slender rush-pea (Hoffmannseggia tenella) and South Texas ambrosia (Ambrosia cheiranthifolia). Both species are listed as endangered under the Endangered Species Act. The draft recovery plan includes specific recovery objectives and criteria that, when achieved, will enable removal of both species from the list of endangered and threatened plants. The US Fish and Wildlife Service request review and comment on this plan from local, State, and Federal agencies; tribes; and the public. They will also accept any new information on the status of the slender rush-pea and South Texas ambrosia throughout each species' range to assist in finalizing the recovery plan.
