Status review of Snail Kite, Wood Stork and other species

The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service will carry out a five-year status review of Snail Kites and Wood Storks, both listed as endangered, as well as 35 threatened and endangered species in Florida, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Georgia, Alabama and South Carolina.

You're encouraged to provide written comments and information about the species before Nov. 27.

Pertinent information would discuss: (1) species biology, such as population trends, distribution, abundance, demographics and genetics; (2) habitat conditions, including amount, distribution and suitability; (3) conservation measures that have been implemented; (4) threat status and trends; and (5) new data or corrections, including taxonomic or nomenclatural changes; identification of erroneous information contained in the ESA list, and improved analytical methods.
