Comment:

Completion of this extensive inventory is an important step in providing benefits to fish and wildlife in the subbasins involved. The proposal demonstrates the significance of the project as a high priority in two subbasins. This project as initially described is consistent with the Program and subbasin plans, as well as sound management practice. The need for the inventory is justified. The proposed solution is reasonable and well thought-out. In their response the sponsors have clarified the nature of the proposed project. The narrative is now consistent with the stated objectives of the project: (1) to gather information on wildlife species composition, distribution and relative abundance on the Duck Valley Indian Reservation; (2) to assess the condition of existing habitat; and (3) to disseminate this information for use on the Reservation and in future subbasin planning iterations. The sponsors indicated that advice will be obtained to ensure that the baseline inventory for species and habitats be well connected to specific objectives and work elements and that administrative approval will be obtained before ESA listed species are handled. The project proposal is now internally consistent with its stated purpose and shows a well thought-out assessment of what expertise and resources are needed and how they will be secured.
