Great Basin Naturalist Memoirs


This paper presents a brief background on Utah's experience with the Endangered Species Act of 1973 to date, the Division on Wildlife Resources' involvement with resident endangered wildlife forms, including the Utah prairie dog, peregrine falcon, bald eagle, woundfin, Colorado squawfish and humpback chub, and problems associated with the listing of native fauna. Also discussed is a proposal to vest the division with authority for endangered plants by legislative mandate.
