Among the endangered species is the California Tiger Salamander, an eight-inch long amphibian with yellow spots all over its body. If a development is expected to affect an endangered species or its habitat, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service requires an environmental remediation plan with specific mitigations.

Sparling Ranch Conservation Bank a win-win for ranchers, developers, wildlife.

During nighttime winter rains, small, brightly-colored amphibians called California tiger salamanders leave the protection of ground squirrel burrows to make the trek to stock-ponds that dot the landscape. There, they breed with their mates and keep company with another rare amphibian, the California red-legged frog. As their names suggest, both species are endemic to California, and both are protected under the Endangered Species Act.

Cascades Frog Takes Another Leap Toward Listing under CESA.

On October 17, 2017, the California Fish and Game Commission (“Commission”) published notice of its preliminary positive finding on a petition to list the Cascades frog (Rana cascadae) as threatened or endangered under the California Endangered Species Act (“CESA”). The Cascades frog inhabits a variety of habitats—including large lakes, ponds, wet meadows and streams—at mid-to-high elevations from the Klamath-Trinity region, along the Cascades Range axis in the vicinity of Mt. Shasta, southward to the headwater tributaries of the Feather River.

San Clemente Island Got Your Goat?

Ten federally protected species of animals and plants live on the Island. Three of them have recently been downgraded. The Navy petitioned to have the San Clemente Island Night Lizard taken off the endangered species list in 2014 and it was de-listed that year. An estimated 21.3 million night lizards occupy the 21-mile-long island, one of the highest densities of any lizard on earth. Over half a foot long - compared with its two-inch cousins in the California desert - the lizard with bright stripes and mottled green scales spends its entire life within a few yards and bears its young live, as mammals do.
