The Plan contains two Permit Areas: one Permit Area applies specifically to the western burrowing owl and the second applies to all other Covered Species. The Permit Area for all Covered Species, with the exception of the western burrowing owl, is the same as the Planís Study Area except it excludes portions of State Parks within the Study Area (see Figure 1-2 of the Plan). Thus, the Permit Area for all Covered Species, with the exception of the western burrowing owl, is 460,205 acres. The Permit Area for the western burrowing owl includes the Permit Area described above as well as the expanded Study Area for burrowing owl conservation. The expanded Study Area for burrowing owl conservation includes portions of the cities of San Jose, Santa Clara, Mountain View, Milpitas, and Sunnyvale in northern Santa Clara County; Fremont in Alameda County; and a small portion of San Mateo County (see Figure 1-2 in the Plan). The expanded Study Area for burrowing owl conservation that falls outside of the Permit Area for all other Covered Species totals 48,464 acres. Thus, the Permit Area for the western burrowing owl is 508,669 acres.
