The U.S Fish and Wildlife Service announces a draft policy on crediting
voluntary conservation actions taken for species prior to their listing
under the Endangered Species Act. The proposed policy seeks to give
landowners, government agencies, and others incentives to carry out
voluntary conservation actions for nonlisted species by allowing the
benefits to the species from a voluntary conservation action undertaken
prior to listing under the Act to be used – either by the person who
undertook such action or by a third party – to mitigate or to serve as a
compensatory measure for the detrimental effects of another action
undertaken after listing.

The public comment period, which was due to close on September 22, has been
extended. The Service will now accept comments on the proposed policy from
all interested parties until midnight on November 6, 2014.
