The U.S. Interior Department in November filed a series of comments critical of two hydro-storage dam proposals on the Little Colorado River. One of the main concerns is the possibly detrimental impact to the endangered humpback chub. KNAU’s Ryan Heinsius reports.
The Trump administration is proposing to reclassify the humpback chub’s status under the Endangered Species Act from endangered to threatened. KNAU’s Ryan Heinsius reports, a recent assessment found the fish no longer faces immediate extinction.
The Center for Biological Diversity has filed another lawsuit against President Donald Trump’s Administration. This one says the administration has failed to prevent livestock from damaging southwestern rivers and streams.
