Come join us in Raleigh, NC to learn about the May 4th listing of the Northern Long-Eared Bar (Myotis septentrionalis).
Mary Frazer, Environmental Specialist with the North Carolina Department of Transportation, will provide a background to explain the listing; ecology; impact of white-nose syndrome; 4(d) rules; NCDOT’s NES work, and potential listing implications on projects.
The US Fish & Wildlife Service proposed the northern long-eared bat as endangered in October of 2013 due to the rapid population decline as a result of the white-nose syndrome. The “endangered” listing becomes effective on May 4, 2015, however, public comments will be received on the interim 4(d) rule through July 1, 2015.
