Lawsuit Launched to Speed Endangered Species Act Protection for 417 Species
Endangered Wildlife Continue to Wait Years for Protection, Increasing Extinction Risk
PORTLAND, Ore. - The Center for Biological Diversity today filed a formal notice of intent to sue the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for failing to act on petitions to protect more than 417 animals and plants under the Endangered Species Act. The notice includes species from across the United States, including Florida sandhill cranes, coastal flatwood crayfish, eastern diamondback rattlesnakes and many others.
I don't agree with most of their petitions or the amount of money the government pays these groups, but I would like to see a resolution on the H. zosterae.
