Magistrate Judge Mark D. Clarke filed a Report and Recommendation, and the matter is now before this court. See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(B), Fed.R.Civ.P. 72(b).

I agree with the Report and Recommendation that Defendants should finalize and approve a Comprehensive Conservation Plan no later than August 1, 2016.
Magistrate Judge Clarke's Report and Recommendation (#29) is adopted. Plaintiffs' motion for summary judgment (#19) is granted and Defendants' motion (#20) is denied. Plaintiffs are to submit a proposed form of judgment within 14 days from the date of this order.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
