Activities to Avoid Jeopardy: The Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) is requesting proposals for projects in support of conservation activities for sensitive aquatic species affected by Reclamation projects and other water development in the Upper Colorado Region. The goal of this program is to reduce the vulnerability and prevent further decline of sensitive aquatic species through management and research activities, thereby reducing the potential for listing under the Endangered Species Act. Pursuing this goal will allow Reclamation to accomplish its core mission of water and power delivery in an environmentally sustainable manner. Priority species include those not currently listed under the Endangered Species Act but are recognized by state and/or federal agencies as sensitive or species of concern. Primary examples include roundtail chub, bluehead sucker, flannelmouth sucker, northern leatherside, southern leatherside, spotted frog, northern leopard frog, and least chub. Two high-priority areas of the program are sensitive species habitat improvement/protection and reducing negative impacts of non-native species on sensitive native species. Proposals for research and monitoring will also be considered, although the role of these projects in implementation of management plans must be clearly identified. (It is anticipated to make multiple awards for this request, not a single award as indicated above.)
