Fisher Candidate Conservation Agreements with Assurances

The Service received five enhancement of survival permit applications pursuant to ESA that we are processing as a batch. The permit applications are associated with a template candidate conservation agreement with assurances (CCAA) previously developed for the conservation of the fisher. The conservation measures in the CCAA are intended to provide a net conservation benefit to the fisher.
