Section 7 Range

Under Section 7 of the Endangered Species Act of 1973, Federal agencies, or project proponents whose actions have a Federal nexus (e.g., Federal funding, permit, or lease), must consult with the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service if their actions “may affect” listed species (endangered, threatened, proposed, candidate) or their habitat.  Section 7 species ranges identify those areas on the landscape where agencies or proponents should consider potential effects, both direct and indirect, to the species and their habitat.  These Section 7 species ranges typically encompass larger areas than specific locations where listed species are known to occur.  Project proponents are encouraged to refer to the Service’s Information, Planning, and Conservation System (IPAC) website at http://ecos.fws.gov/ipac/ or to contact the FWS Wyoming Ecological Services Office for additional information http://www.fws.gov/wyominges/ :307-772-2374.  (Section 7 Range boundaries based on the best available data at time of development.  Section 7 Ranges will be updated as new information becomes available.)

Species Information

If the proposed action may lead to consumptive use of water or have the potential to affect water quality in the Platte River System, there may be impacts to threatened and endangered species inhabiting the downstream reaches of this river system.  For more information on how to seek coverage under the ESA for water-related activities through the Platte River Recovery Implementation Program, please visit our web site at http://www.fws.gov/platteriver.
