Lawsuits Force Listing of Six Rare Birds as Endangered
"The long overdue Endangered Species Act listings can make an important difference in the struggle to save these vanishing bird species."
- Jeff Miller, Center for Biological Diversity spokesperson
Washington, D.C., USA - The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has listed six rare birds from around the world as endangered under the U.S. Endangered Species Act.
Listing international species under the U.S. Endangered Species Act restricts buying and selling of protected wildlife, increases conservation funding and attention, and adds scrutiny to projects proposed by U.S. government and multilateral lending agencies such as the World Bank.
