SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The National Wildlife Refuge System Administration Act of 1966, as amended by the Refuge Improvement Act of 1997 (16 U.S.C. 668dd et seq.), requires each refuge to develop and implement a CCP. We published a notice in the Federal Register on December 22, 2008 (73 FR 78386), announcing the availability of the Draft Revised comprehensive conservation plan and environmental assessment for Farallon National Wildlife Refuge. The document identified a review period ending on February 20, 2009. Subsequent to the release of the draft CCP, we have received several requests to extend the comment period. With this notice, we announce our decision to reopen the comment period until April 13, 2009, to ensure the public has sufficient time to review the document.
