Darter "downlisted"

Rowan Gould, director of U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, takes a look at a container of Okaloosa darters March 28 at Eglin Air Force Base, Fla. The small fish, whose habitat is almost exclusively on the Eglin ranges, became the first-ever fish on DoD lands to be reclassified on the endangered species list. It remains in the “threatened” status, but due to major erosion control efforts by 96th Civil Engineer Group’s Natural Resources Management Section and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service the population has tripled since 1995, bringing the species back from the brink of extinction.
