  • Description:
    "On April 20, 2007, NMFS [National Marine Fisheries Service] published a proposed rule to list the Cook Inlet beluga whale as an endangered species under the Endangered Species Act (ESA; 72 FR 19854). NMFS released another status review in April 2008, which upheld the conclusions drawn in the 2006 review. However, the most realistic model in the 2008 review predicted a 79 percent extinction probability in 300 years (39 percent probability of extinction in 100 years). On April 22, 2008, NMFS decided to postpone the ESA listing decision until October 2008 (73 FR 21578). Should the Cook Inlet belugas be listed as endangered, a separate process to develop a recovery plan, as required for an endangered species, would be initiated"--Executive summary.
