Habitat loss is the primary threat.
State Wildlife Agencies have expressed a desire to preclude the need to list the NEC.
Assess species status and assist in the development and facilitation of voluntary conservation tools, so that those species do not need the protection of the Endangered Species Act.
Section4(b)(1)(A) of the Endangered Species Act states that the Service will take ’’* * * into account those efforts, if any, being made by any State or foreign nation, or any political subdivision of a State or foreign nation, to protect such species *” when making listing decisions.
In evaluating these efforts, the Service will need;
Step 1. Identify focal areas.
Step 2. Improve patch quality, quantity and connectivity.
Step 3. Link focal areas through dispersal.
