This article continues our series of quarterly updates of important endangered species actions by the Federal Government. Two agencies have authority to administer the Endangered Species Act (ESA): the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) and the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS). From September through December 2010, USFWS and NMFS took notable actions in many states across the country, including proposals for listing species and critical habitat designation.
