Include Lynx Protection in Recovery Plans

United States Fish and Wildlife Service has not yet designated critical habitat for the lynx, even though it was listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act in 2000.

More than decade later, the Forest Service is delaying in rewriting its “Lynx Amendment” which affects 20 different forest plans that deal with lynx habitat in 18 national forests. The amendment goes with each of its forest plans and the USFWS had not yet designated critical habitat for the lynx so it isn't included in the amendment.

The logging industry and destructive mining continues to threaten lynx recovery with no designated habitat;- and the looming possibilty of the XL Pipeline may set the lynx on the course to extinction without intervention and protection.

Stop putting corporate interests and profits before America's unprotected wildlife- and create a plan that desiginates critical habitat for the lynx, and its recovery.
