New guidance from USFWS
To enable effective and efficient fish and wildlife conservation, the Service has developed DRAFT technical guidance to help employees and partners establish biological outcomes at defined landscape scales. This guidance describes a standard process and criteria for defining biological outcomes using a surrogate species approach, reducing the burden of addressing the requirements of many species individually. In the coming months the Service will be entertaining comments on the DRAFT technical guidance from employees, States, Tribes and our conservation partners in refining and improving the technical guidance.
