Comment Period on Lesser Prairie-Chicken Listing Proposal Reopened

The public comment period on our 2012 proposal to add the lesser prairie-chicken to the Federal List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife will be reopened for 45 days. Reopening our comment period will allow the public, the scientific community and other interested parties to provide input on the original listing proposal in light of a newly-released range-wide conservation plan for the species.
