Add comment on:Rare Mountain Fox in California and Oregon Closer to Endangered Species Act Protection
Center for Biological Diversity
SAN FRANCISCO— The Center for Biological Diversity reached a legal agreement (see PDF) late Monday, September 23, requiring the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to make a decision on Endangered Species Act protection for the Sierra Nevada red fox. The Center petitioned for protection for the fox in 2011, leading to a determination by the Service in 2012 that the rare mountain dweller may warrant protection. As a result of Monday’s agreement, the Service will make a decision on the fox’s protection by 2015.
