Land of Otters


     WASHINGTON (CN) – The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has reopened the public comment period on its proposal to designate nearly 6,000 acres in the Northern Sea Otter’s range as critical habitat under the Endangered Species Act.
The comment period was reopened because the previous one was over the Christmas holidays.
     The agency is specifically interested in comments discussing what habitat is critical to the survival of the species and any foreseeable economic, national security, or other potential impacts resulting from the proposed designation and, in particular, any impacts on small entities, and the benefits of including or excluding areas that exhibit these impacts.
