Endangered Species List
The federal government is proposing removing most of the world’s humpback whale population from the endangered species list.
With all the rain we’ve been having, one would think it would be good thing for the imperiled salmon population. It would be if all that new fresh water wasn’t so confusing. The salmon keep getting lost. Instead of migrating to their spawning ground, they wind up swimming up a ditch and ultimately into a death trap.
Federal wildlife officials have added a native San Francisco shrub that was once believed to be extinct to the endangered species list.
