PLF on the radio: reclassifying the wood stork
Author: Joshua Thompson
PLF principal attorney Reed Hopper will be interviewed on Fox News Radio (Ft. Myers 92.5 FM) at 8:30 a.m. EST on Friday, October 1st. Reed will discuss PLF's lawsuit on behalf of the Florida Home Builders Association which forced the US Fish & Wildlife Service to review the classification of all endangered species. Even after a court ordered the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to complete a status review for the wood stork in 2007, and the subsequent review by the Service's own biologists resulted in a recommendation to downlist the wood stork from endangered to threatened, the Service never acted on its own recommendation.
