DNR To Host Public Hearings On Endangered Species

The public will have an opportunity to comment on proposed changes to Wisconsin's endangered or threatened species list at five public hearings the DNR will hold around the state in March.

The proposal is to remove 16 birds, plants and other animals and to add eight species to the list of endangered or threatened species. An additional 29 scientific names would also be updated under the proposed revisions. The public hearings in our area will be held on March 5th at 11 am in Old Library Room at U.W. Eau Claire on Garfield Ave. and on March 6th at 4 pm at the Marathon County Public Library in Wausau.

Since the first endangered or threatened species list was developed in 1972, it has been revised 10 times, most recently in 2011 to add cave bats due to the imminent threat of white-nose syndrome.
