The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service released a recovery plan for the Rufa Red Knot (Calidris canutus rufa) this week. The subspecies is listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act. 

As required by the ESA, the draft recovery plan contains: (1) a description of such site-specific management actions as may be necessary to achieve the plan’s goal for the conservation and survival of the species;  (2) objective, measurable criteria which, when met, would result in a determination, in accordance with the provisions of this section, that the species be removed from the List; and (3) estimates of the time required and the cost to carry out those measures needed to achieve the plan’s goal and to achieve intermediate steps toward that goal. 

Comments are due July 12 and can be submitted here.
