Greetings California Mojave RIT members.Attached are the results of your work at the December 4-5 in-person RIT meeting in Barstow: 1. Prioritized actions for your workgroup areas; 2. Important topics for research or effectiveness monitoring; and 3. Blank dissent form which you may fill out for any priority categories which were agreed upon by your workgroup, but you do not support (see Action Item #1 below).There is one Excel workbook for each workgroup. Note that the "RA#" column refers to the SDSS model ranking of the Recovery Action Type (e.g., restore habitat, targeted predator control, etc.) under which the specific action was proposed. So, RA# 3.03 tells us that this action came from the RA type that was ranked 3rd for this Tortoise Conservation Area by the model and that it was the 3rd action listed under this type.You can see that some proposed recovery actions ended up with higher or lower rankings than the SDSS model suggested (such as an RA# 3.03 being proposed as a priority 1 or a RA# 14.01 being proposed as a priority 2).Action Items:1) If you do not support the prioritization category assigned by your workgroup to a particular action, you may document your opinion and why you disagree with your workgroup using the attached dissent form. You may scan and email or print and regular-mail your completed forms to me. Note that your responses on the dissent forms will be included in the Recovery Action Plan for your workgroup.2) Please provide any thoughts, comments or suggestions on the completed format for your workgroup's prioritized actions. Does this format make sense? Do you have a suggestion for a better format?Completed dissent forms and format suggestions for your prioritized actions are due by close of business on Friday, January 18.Next steps: Once we receive your feedback, we will assemble a Recovery Action Plan version 1 for your RIT. Recovery Action Plan (v.1) will go out for management review, will be reviewed by the MOG, and we will provide a forum for the public to comment. Feedback from public comments, actions that have been implemented, and new scientific information will be considered in Recovery Action Plan (v.2). Please contact us if you have any questions!Many thanks,Chris-- Christine Owen Mullen, Ph.D.U.S. Fish and Wildlife ServiceDesert Tortoise Recovery Office777 E.
