Wisconsin DNR seeks input on endangered species changes

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) -- The Wisconsin Depart of Natural Resources is looking to revise the state's endangered species list, and they'd like input from the public.

The DNR is considering adding eight and removing 16 plants and animals to the list. The agency is inviting businesses, developers, scientists and citizens to submit comments on the changes' economic effects through Oct. 24.

Among the species the DNR wants to take off the list are the barn owl, the snowy egret, bog bluegrass, hemlock parsley and yellow giant hyssop. Proposed additions include the black tern, Kirtland's warbler, the beach-dune tiger beetle and the fawnsfoot mussel.
