CDFW press release:
At its June meeting, California Fish and Game Commission acted on several problems affecting California’s natural resources. Here are some highlights from this week’s meeting held in Los Angeles, Saint Helena and Trinidad, with an option for the public to join via Zoom.
Regarding whether to list the Western Joshua Tree as threatened or endangered under the California Endangered Species Act (CESA), after lengthy deliberations – including two motions that did not pass due From 2-2 votes – The Commission continued the point of the agenda until its October meeting. Meanwhile, the Commission reopened the public file for the specific purpose of continuing the tribal consultation. The Commission also asked California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) to provide the October meeting with a framework for a conservation plan for the Western Joshua range on the range of the range and a report on any related legislation. It is important to note that the western Joshua tree will remain protected by CESA during this period.
The commission determined that the inscription of the lizard without temblor legs as a threatened or endangered species under the CESA can be justified. This action begins a one -year status examination to be completed by the CDFW, during which the lizard without temblor legs is protected as a candidate species.
The Commission has adopted a 90-day extension to the emergency regulations for inland low-flow sport fishing restrictions due to drought conditions.
The Commission has honored its most immediate outgoing president, Peter Silva, for his years of service to the Commission and his decades of public service under the governors of California, and for the American environmental protection agency under President Barack Obama on questions of water and natural resources, and wished him retired spending time with his children and grandchildren. Commissioner Silva resigned from the Commission on February 18, 2022.

Commissioner Jacque Hostler-Carmesin was present from a public place in Trinidad and Commissioner Eric Sklar was present from a public place in Saint Helena. There is a vacancy in the Commission.
