WWP Files 60-day Notice Letters with the Forest Service and the US Fish & Wildlife Service to protect threatened fish species

In January 2009 Western Watersheds Project has already filed three 60-day Notice Letters to the US Forest Service and the US Fish & Wildlife Service in regard to failures to comply with the Endangered Species Act.

Three of the Notice Letters involve Forest Service authorization of livestock grazing that negatively impacts streams that provide habitat for Bull Trout, Chinook Salmon, and Steelhead.  These letters address grazing mismanagement on the Camas Creek and Pass Creek Allotments of the Salmon-Challis National Forest as well as the Smiley Creek and Fisher Creek Allotments of the Sawtooth National Recreation Area of the Sawtooth National Forest.
