Restore: The North Woods filed a petition with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Servic
Restore: The North Woods filed a petition with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to list the Atlantic salmon under the Endangered Species Act. Last week a decision was announced to not list the salmon at all in most of New England, and to study the matter more in Maine. The act itself is up for its sixth reauthorization, and this time it might be endangered. Members of Maine's congressional delegation apparently threatened to weaken the act if the salmon were listed on it. Details.
