It is the responsibility of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to conserve plants and animals . . . and the habitat on which they depend . . . which are officially listed according to federal or state laws in categories that imply significant potential for extinction. The BLM also provides for the conservation of the habitats of unlisted extinction-prone (i.e., sensitive) plants and animals. It also applies to all BLM programs and actions related to the public lands, the federal subsurface mineral estate, and the submerged lands of the Outer Continental Shelf (OSC).
