Environmental Group Supportive of Fish and Wildlife Service in Listing of Lesser Prairie Chicken

Thu, 27 Mar 2014 18:07:22 CDT

Environmental Group Supportive of Fish and Wildlife Service in Listing of Lesser Prairie Chicken David Festa of the Environmental Defense Fund offered the following statement on the listing by the Fish and Wildlife Service to declare the Lesser Prairie Chicken as a Threatened species, one step short of declaring it an endangered species.


"Today the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service officially listed the lesser prairie-chicken as a "threatened" species under the Endangered Species Act.


“It's a sad day when a species has to get listed. The bright spot is that the Service has opened the door to innovative approaches for species conservation, as demonstrated by its commitment to range-wide planning. By sharing the responsibility for species protection with the states and private landowners, the Service has increased the potential for recovery of the lesser prairie-chicken. This is a big evolution in how the Act gets implemented.



"We believe more can, and should, be done to engage private landowners. I am hopeful that through modern species conservation measures like habitat exchanges currently under consideration with the Service, we can meet the challenge of feeding and fueling a growing population without harming the planet in the process."
