Sur- veys will provide data which may prevent future threatened and endan- igered species listings in North 'Dakota. "Several species in North Dakota !have been proposed to be protected under the Endangered Species Act, including several native pollinators," Goehring said. "Complete data sets weren't available when the Dakota skipper butterfly was listed, and sur- vey work done following the listing indicates it may have been avoided had that information been available." Goehring indicated that without updated, high quality comprehensive data, the federal government is forced to make listing decisions based on outdated, incomplete and sometimes biased science. Listings may cause restrictions on manage- ment practices, including grazing re- strictions, pesticide use restrictions, land conversion issues and more. "The state needs a defensible po- sition to push back when species are proposed to be listed under the En- dangerrd Species Act," Goehring said. "The best means to defend North Dakota is high quality com- prehensive data." The North Dakota Department of Agriculture (NDDA), along with several partners, funded a statewide pollinator study in 2016. The study is a four-year project that aims to iden- tify bee and butterfly species present in North Dakota and estimate abun- dance of these species. The study is being performed by researchers from North Dakota State University (NDSU) and data collec- tion began in 2017.
