(KSL News) -- A new long-range plan is in the works to rescue Utah's most threatened species of wildlife.

For at least 30 years there have been concerns about many species including sage grouse, spotted frogs and some species of prairie dog. Now the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources has developed a ten-year plan to keep those animals off the Endangered Species List.

It's designed to attract federal matching funds for a variety of programs, including monitoring and and habitat improvment.

Public comment is welcome up until May 6th.
