Beetles were moved to areas within the flycatcher's breeding range along the Virgin River near the UT, AZ, NV, border. Beetles were also detected within the flycatchers breeding range in southern NV, northwest AZ, and NE New Mexico. These were also likely a result of human movement of beetles into the range of the flycatcher. Beetle releases in Texas may allow pathway of beetles into the Rio Grande in NM. APHIS determined that beetles were not likely to be able to persist within the geographic range of the flycatcher, nor move very far. However, beetles are thriving within the flycatcher's range and are moving long distances by themselves and by humans throughout the Colorado River within the Grand Canyon and Little Colorado River in AZ. Beetles were moved to the Rio Grande near Santa Ana Pueblo north of Albuquerque and detected in 2011. Briefing for R2 Director was prepared to generate uniformed treatment of this issue in FWS so that beetles do not enter areas where native vegetation can not grow due to land management choices and to address consultation on 2005 critical habitat designation. Meeting tween FWS in TX, NM, and AZ was proposed but cancelled due to lack of funds at end of year. A meeting was held in NM that included personnel from ES offices in NM, AZ, TX, and UT to discuss the issue. Walton Family Foundation and FWS (Region 2 office) are developing a MOU. WFF is interested in contributing funds toward improving riparian habitat conditions affected by beetles. WFF has hired Tamarisk Coalition to help implement a strategy. Focus of their effort is presently the Colorado Plateau along the NV, AZ, UT border. There is some uncertainty toward what types of projects the WFF will fund, what landowners will participate, and whether the ability to implement appropriate actions will actually result in flycatcher habitat. WFF is seeking matching funds to implement projects.
