|AUDUBON CALIFORNIA NEWS July 2014ESA protections should be upheld for CA Gnatcatcher
Audubon California is opposing the latest attempt by southern California developers to remove the California Gnatcatcher from protection under the Endangered Species Act. The delisting petition relies on a new study claiming the California Gnatcatcher is not a genetically unique subspecies, but a number of avian experts contend that this study is based on inadequate data and that the petition should be rejected by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service. We are keeping a close eye on the developing situation.
