Let's Talk New Mexico 8/29 8a: The Trump Administration recently changed Endangered Species Act regulations affecting how species are removed from endangered status and streamlining permits for the oil and gas and ranching industries. Environmentalists say the rules weaken protections. How could the new rules change industry and conservation in New Mexico? We want to hear from you! Do you work in oil and natural gas, mining, or outdoor recreation? How do endangered species affect your livelihood? Are you concerned about the future of endangered species?
