Add Dixie Valley Toad to the Endangered Species List

The U.S. and Wildlife Service has announced an emergency listing of the Dixie Valley Toad under the Endangered Species Act.

It is the smallest of the western toads and is native to Nevada. The protection goes into effect immediately, and the species will be under federal protection for 240 days.

The agency will take public comments to determine if the listing should extend beyond that period. It will also hold a virtual public meeting on the proposed listing ruling in May.
