Conservation groups are criticizing the Trump Administration’s new Endangered Species Act rules, saying they weaken the law. They’re concerned the rules will do more harm to New Mexico’s endangered and threatened species.
There are only 114 Mexican gray wolves in the wild in the U.S. and conservationists say inbreeeding is stifling their survival. Activist groups want the federal government to release more captive adult wolves into the wild.
The Center for Biological Diversity filed a lawsuit against President Trump’s administration last week targeting a plan to build a wall along the U.S. border with Mexico. The group is calling for the federal government to investigate the wall’s environmental impacts.
