Summary: WAC 232-12-011 Wildlife classified as protected shall not be hunted or fished, this amendment adds the Olympic mudminnow to protected wildlife designated as sensitive species in Washington. The Olympic mudminnow is found only in Washington and the current distribution includes the Olympic Peninsula, Chehalis and lower Deschutes River drainages, and south Puget Sound, west of the Nisqually River. They are usually found in slow-moving streams, wetlands, and ponds. Within these habitats, they require a muddy bottom, little or no water flow, and abundant aquatic vegetation. Wetland loss in Washington since settlement is estimated to range from 20-50%. While the rate of loss of wetlands has been reduced, there are still 700-2000 acres lost each year. Because of the mudminnow's very restricted range, complete dependence on health wetland habitat, and the continuing loss of wetlands, the mudminnow is vulnerable and likely to become threatened or endangered in a significant portion of this range without cooperative management. This WAC identified species of wild animals to be managed by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife as protected species in one of three categories: Threatened, Sensitive, and other protected wildlife. This amendment adds the Olympic mudminnow to protected wildlife designated as a sensitive species. Sensitive species are in need of special management consideration to keep them from becoming threatened or endangered. Land managing agencies and local, state, and federal governments may use these lists to consider the needs of species of special concern in land management decisions. There is no impact to small business.

WAC 232-12-014 Wildlife classified as endangered species, this amendment will add the mardon skipper butterfly and northern leopard frog to endangered species classification in Washington. The mardon skipper occurs in two disjunct areas in the state: The Puget Prairie and the southern Cascades. Based on several year so repeated survey effort, it has been concluded that populations at five of eighteen historic sites have been extirpated (four in the Puget Prairie, and one in the southern Cascades). Nine of the eighteen historic sites are known to be occupied; the current status of four other sites is uncertain. A few hundred individuals are estimated to remain. The remaining butterflies are threatened by insecticides, invasive plant control practices, fire, and recreational activities. Due to the mardon skipper's small population size, limited distribution, isolation, and threats to remaining populations, the species is in danger of extirpation in Washington. The northern leopard frog appears to have been extirpated from most of its former range in Washington. Field surveys conducted since 1992 indicate a decline from eighteen known areas in eight counties to two known areas in one county. The remaining sites occupied by leopard frogs in Washington are entirely on public lands managed by WDFW. Major threats to leopard frogs, however, occur from factors outside the direct control of WDFW, including predation and competition by bullfrogs and other introduced species, and the effects of agricultural chemicals. Due to the significant reduction in range and abundance, and the continued threats to the remaining occupied sites, the northern leopard frog is in danger of extinction in Washington. These species will require special management considerations and development of a recovery plan in order to restore them to viable population levels. This WAC identifies species of wild animals to be managed by the Department of Fish and Wildlife as endangered species. This amendment adds the mardon skipper and northern leopard frog as a state endangered species. Endangered species are in need of special management consideration to recover populations to healthy levels and to keep them from being extirpated from Washington. Land managing agencies and local, state and federal governments may use these lists to consider the needs of species of special concern in land management decisions. There is no impact to small business.
