Abstract : Army installations are required by Army regulation to prepare Endangered Species Management Plans (ESMPs) if they contain Federally listed species. This requirement is to ensure full compliance with the Endangered Species Act. This document has been provided to aid installations in meeting the requirement. The objective of this manual is to provide a format for developing management plans for listed and proposed threatened and endangered (T&E) species on Army installations, consistent with Species Recovery Plans published by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS). It is intended to meet the requirements of the ESA and procedural requirements of the Army's policy and guidance on T&E species matters on Army installations. It will also provide uniform and standardized information necessary to manage listed and proposed T&E species to ensure that Army actions will not jeopardize the continued existence of such species or result in the destruction or adverse modification of their critical habitat. This manual is not meant to be used in the place of regulations on matters pertaining to T&E species. Specifically, Chapter 11 of AR 200-3 should be consulted during the preparation of management plans and other documents pertaining to T&E species.
