The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has determined that the Goose Creek milk-vetch - a plant found only in a 10-square mile area of Idaho, Nevada, and Utah - warrants protection under the Endangered Species Act. The Service is unable to list the plant at this time because of pending actions for other species with higher listing priorities. Listing will be initiated when funding is available.
