Name of Document:  XYZ Ranch Safe Harbor Agreement and Environmental Action Statement

 

Descriptive Paragraph of purpose/role of document:  XYZ Ranch has applied to us for a 15-year Enhancement of Survival Permit for the federally threatened [SPECIES (scientific name)] under section 10(a)(1)(A) of the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended. This permit application includes a draft Safe Harbor Agreement (SHA) and draft Environmental Action Statement (EAS). These documents describe the proposed action and measures that would result in a net conservation benefit [SPECIES]. Approval and implementation of the XYZ Ranch SHA would provide a net conservation benefit to the species by maintaining [SPECIES] habitat within a xx-ac (xx-ha) baseline area, allowing access to researchers, minimizing ground disturbing activities within ground squirrel habitat, and potentially implementing timber-related habitat enhancement measures within the covered area.
