Proposed Tennessee refuge in sight

Paint Rock, Alabama – In the northeast corner of Alabama, a river runs largely hidden from the outside world. Her headwaters begin in the limestone springs and hardwood forests of Tennessee. They then riffle across the Alabama line with an amazing abundance of fish, mussels and snails. Finally, before reaching the bossy Tennessee River, the little river winds through canebrake, cow pasture and cotton field.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is reopening the public comment period for 30 days on our September 30, 2021 proposal to remove the ivory-billed woodpecker from the Federal List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife due to extinction. The Service is also holding a virtual public hearing on the proposal. The hearing and reopening of the comment period are being conducted in order to allow all interested parties additional time to comment on the proposed delisting.
