Sixty-Four conservation organizations, including ABRA and several of its members, filed comments on September 3 with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the National Marine Fisheries Service in response to a proposal by the two agencies to define “habitat” in the regulations governing the Endangered Species Act (ESA).  The comments, filed by the Southern Environmental Law Center on behalf of the conservation groups, argue that the agencies’ proposal would limit their “ability to protect and restore the habitats species need to recover” and is “contrary to the conservation mandate of the ESA.”  For a copy of the comments, click here.
