Birds Threatened By Proposed Rollback Of Endangered Species Act Protections

The U.S. Department of the Interior is currently proposing to roll back endangered and threatened species protections in three critical areas. Their changes will roll back habitat protection for endangered and threatened species, allow take of threatened species, and weaken the role that biological assessment and science play in listing decisions.

The public has until September 24 to comment on these changes. We’ve put together a blog on the proposed changes, their impact, and how to comment. You can find that here: We encourage everyone to read it and follow the links to comment.

Note that I really tried to explain the technical definitions and bureaucratic language. The proposed changes might seem boring and unimportant, but they are anything but. Follow the link, read, learn, comment, and share if you think it’s worthwhile.
