Call Edmund Saucedo at 575-542-9716 Submitted by NM DEPT of HEALTH~Santa Fe New data analyzed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) revealed a de- crease in the prevalence of self- reported obesity among New Mexico adults in 2013 over the year before. New Mexico is one of only fourteen U.S states and territories to report a decrease. The data come from the most recent Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) annual survey, a state-based phone survey that collects health information from approximately 400,000 adults aged 18years and older. BRFSS collects data in all 50 states, as well as the District of Columbia and three U.S. territo- ries (Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands). The data showed a 0.7 per- centage point decrease in the rate of all adults reporting themselves to be obese in New Mexico last year over the same survey con- ducted in 2012. "The new numbers are the latest in a growing body of evi- dence showing encouraging news about our state's effort to reduce the number of obese residents," said Department of Health Cabi- net Secretary Retta Ward, MPH. "There is no question we are mov- ing in the right direction, but there's also no question we have much more work to do" New Mexico is one of the few U.S. states consistently showing signs of stabilizing after years of dramatic increase in obesity in the country between the years of 1990 to 2010. Among the de- creases: Childhood obesity rates among New Mexico 3rd graders declined measurably from 2010 through 2013. The Department of Roadblocks during hunting seasons Submitted by NM DEPT of GAME & FISH/Santa Fe The Department of Game and Fish will conduct roadblocks throughout the state during hunt- ing seasons to collect harvest data and to detect wildlife law viola- tions. Hunting seasons are ongoing for deer, elk, pronghorns, bears and some other species as listed in the department's Hunting Rules & Information booklets. At roadblocks, conservation officers also will check for com- pliance with the Off Highway Motor Vehicle Act and the Aquatic Invasive Species Comtrol Act. Drivers of vehicles haulling wood products will be asked to produce documentation as re- quired by the Forest Conserva- tion Act. Department officers may be assisted by other law enforcement agencies such as the U.S. Forest Service, Bureau of Land Manage- ment, New Mexico State Police or county sheriff's offices. As a result, the public may encounter minor delays. To report a wildlife-law vio- lation, please contact a Depart- ment of Game and Fish area of- fice in Santa Fe, Albuquerque, Raton, Roswell or Las Cruces, or call the toll-free Operation Game Thief hotline at (800) 432-GAME (4263). Callers can remain anony- mous and earn rewards for infor- mation leading to charges being filed. in NM ity Health announced in March 2014 to have a measureable decline in it found a 12 percent decrease the obesity rates of low-income during that time, going from 22.6 children between the ages of two percent of obese 3rd graders in to four years old who participate 2010 to 19.9 percent in 2013. in federally funded maternal and Obesity rates among American child nutrition programs such as Indian 3rd graders, the group with the New Mexico Women, Infants the highest prevalence, also de- and Children (WIC). clined going from 36.6 percent A report from the Trust in 2010 to 29.5 percent in 2013, for America's Health and the Rob- a 20 percent decline, ert Wood Johnson Foundation, F A report released in Au- as in Fat: How Obesity Threat- gust 2013 by the Centers for Dis- ens America's Future 2013, ease Control and Prevention showed the number of obese (CDC) showed obesity rates adults in New Mexico stabiliz- among young children from low ing.

Rio Grande cutthroat trout no longer endangered species Submitted by NM DEPT of GAME & FiSH~Santa Fe New Mexico's state fish, the Rio Grande cutthroat trout, no longer is a candidate for listing under the En- dangered Spe- cies Act, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Ser- vice an- nounced Tues- day. Since 2008, aggressive conservation efforts by the New Mexico De- partment of Game and Fish and it's partners have enhanced or re- stored pure-strain native cut- throats in 127 streams that are open to public fishing. Rio Grande cutthroats now occupy about 700 miles of stream habi- tat. After reviewing current sci- entific information about the cutthroat's populations, genetic diversity and habitat conditions in its historic range in northern New Mexico and southern Colo- rado, the federal agency deemed that the fish is in no danger of extinction. The Rio Grande cut- throat was designated a candidate for listing in 2008, mostly be- cause its habitat had dwindled to 11 percent of what it once was. "Tuesday's decision is a trib- ute to the hard work by the de- partment and its" public and pri- vate partners to conserve our state. fish and keep it off the endangered species list," said Paul Kienzle, chairman of the State Game Com- mission. "Italso ensures recre- ational public fishing opportuni- ties for Rio Grande cutthroat trout for years to come." Cutthroat restoration part- ners include Trout Unlimited, New Mexico Trout, Colorado Parks and Wildlife, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, U.S. Forest Service, Turner Enterprises Inc., northern tribes and pueblos, and others. T h e most impres- sive restora- tion effort has been the on- going project to restore pure- strain native cutthroats to the Rio Costilla watershed, which con- sists of more than 150 miles of streams, 25 lakes and the Costilla Reservoir. More than 70 miles of streams have been restored and more than 33,000 native fish have been stocked in those wa- ters since that project began in 2007. This year, the department plans to stock another six miles of restored waters. All of the stocked Rio Grande cutthroats come from the department's Seven Springs Hatchery in the Jemez Moun- tains, which raises nothing but genetically diverse, pure-strain fish for restoration and recreation. "Keeping native trout in our state's streams and lakes is ex- tremely important to us, not only because it's the department's mandate to protect native species, but also because it's our goal to provide anglers with opportuni- ties to catch them," said Bryan Bakevich, the department's Rio Grande cutthroat trout biologist. "The Rio Grande cutthroat is found only in one place in the world - northern New Mexico and southern Colorado. We need to keep them around."
