Wolverine gets second chance at ESA protection


From a joint press release: "In a breakthrough in the effort to save one of the rarest wilderness wildlife species in the lower-48 states, a federal judge has overturned the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's refusal to consider new legal protections for the wolverine.  The decision, issued last Friday, September 29, sided with four conservation groups that challenged the Service's rejection of a petition to list the wolverine under the Endangered Species Act.  The four groups are Defenders of Wildlife, Klamath-Siskiyou Wildlands Center, Conservation Northwest and Friends of the Clearwater."
