Global Protection: Several (4-12) occurrences appropriately protected and managed
Comments: This species occurs in several state and regional parks and other at least semi-protected areas. Most populations are on private land; an estimated 5% of known populations occur on government-owned lands.
In Santa Barbara County, all of the known and potential habitat is largely on unprotected private land (USFWS 2000).
USFWS (2005) decided that none of the potential critical habitat for the Sonoma County distinct population
segment of the California tiger salamander would de designated as critical habitat, based on interim conservation strategies and measures being implemented by those local governing agencies with land use authority over the area and also as a result of economic exclusions authorized under section 4(b)(2) of the Endangered Species Act.
