COMMENT OPPORTUNITY: Black-capped Petrel listing open for comment again

Recommended Posts

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has announced that it will reopen the comment period on its 2018 proposal to list the Black-capped Petrel (Pterodroma hasitata) as a threatened species under the Endangered Species Act.

Citing “new information regarding planned offshore wind energy projects that fall within the black-capped petrel’s range,” the agency will accept comments for an additional 30 days, until 1 June.

According to the Federal Register notice, “an area currently proposed for development off the coast of North Carolina overlaps with the species’ core foraging area along the Gulf Stream and nutrient-rich waters.”
