WDFW comment period: Mazama pocket gophers

Pocket gophers (Northern pocket gopher shown here) are stout-bodied rodents with small ears and eyes and large clawed front paws.
Their large front teeth are used to loosen soil and rocks while digging, as well as to cut and eat roots. (Photo by Ty Smedes.)

As part of the review process, the agency is inviting the public to submit relevant information on the following topics for each species:

Threats and trends

Conservation measures that have benefited the species

New data collected since the last status review for the species”
