Wyoming governor lauds Fish and Wildlife for using reliable science to de-list mountain plover from ESA
CHEYENNE, Wyo. - Statement by Gov. Dave Freudenthal regarding the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's decision, announced Monday, to withdraw its proposal to list the mountain plover as an endangered species:
"I am gratified to learn that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has elected to use reliable science in its decision to withdraw its proposal for listing the mountain plover. My hope is that this trend will continue into ongoing discussions of the endangered species list, such as those surrounding the Preble's meadow jumping mouse and the gray wolf. I look forward to continuing to work with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service on those issues."
Copies of the withdrawal can be obtained from the Western Colorado
