National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) announced a third extension on the public comment period on the proposed rule to revise the green turtle listing under the Endangered Species Act (ESA). The extension is due to a recent typhoon in the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI). Public comments will be due on September 25, 2015.
