Center for Biological Diversity

Conservation groups today filed a notice of intent to sue the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for reducing critical habitat for the endangered Peninsular bighorn sheep by 55 percent.

Salazar Taking Stewardship Seriously 3.5.2009 NewWest.Net Travel & Outdoors
To hear the public relations arm of the oil and gas industry describe it, Ken Salazar’s first few months on the job as Secretary of the Interior have been a disaster. But if you ask the country’s sportsmen and women, you’ll find they emphatically disagree. Since his confirmation by Congress in January, Salazar has restored some common sense and responsibility to the process by which America’s public lands are loaned to industry for oil and gas extraction. Hunters and anglers in states that hold the majority of BLM and Forest Service lands are applauding the more balanced approach taken by Salazar’s Department of the Interior in considering the detrimental effects irresponsible development can have on fish and game habitat.
