Dear All:


I'd like to alert everyone to an upcoming comment deadline on a proposed
endangered species listing in the United States.


On November 17, NMFS proposed adding the insular Hawaiian false killer
whale to the U.S. endangered species list.  In support of this action,
it relied on the findings of its biological review team, which concluded
that the population satisfies the conditions for listing.  In short, it
found (1) that the population is discrete from other false killer whale
populations; (2) that it is significant to the species as a whole based
on its unique ecology and other factors; and (3) that it is at serious
risk of functional extinction within the next 75 years.


The deadline for commenting on this important proposal **will expire
next Tuesday on February 15.**  Please consider commenting, and feel
free to contact me with any questions.


Directions on submitting comments electronically or by mail can be found
on the first page of NMFS' notice, at


Many thanks,

Michael Jasny
