The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has released a draft environmental assessment for the proposed experimental population of sihek (Guam kingfisher) to the Nature Conservancy's Cooper Island nature preserve and the Palmyra Atoll National Wildlife Refuge. The National Environmental Policy Act requires federal agencies to identify and disclose the anticipated effects of federal actions to human environments. The experimental release of sihek on Palmyra Atoll consists of the issuance of a new Federal Rule under section 10(j) of the Endangered Species Act. This draft environmental assessment analyzes potential effects to the human environment, alternative actions, and whether such effects may be significant.
