Yes I know I am repeating myself, get the point?
Possible manatee status change strikes balance for supporters, worries environmentalists
Today’s article in the Daily Commercial newspaper it is plain as the nose on your face as to where Chuck Underwood, a regional spokesman The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service wants to go with this because of the statements made by him in the article, or he hasn’t a clue as to the laws governing his office?
(Officials have heard a “wide variety of presumptions based on what people think could happen” if the status is changed to threatened, said Chuck Underwood, a regional spokesman for the Wildlife Service. “The petitioners think if we reclassify, they get one step closer to removing speed zones. Plain and simple, they’re wrong.”)
Plain and simple Chucky, you are wrong, it could mean the next step is the removal of the speed signs and you know this, or at least should know this.
(On the other side, there are those who “think it’s going to weaken protections,” Underwood said. “You don’t reclassify from endangered to threatened and then immediately take away all the things that contributed to the improvement.”)
In this statement you are half right and you should know this also, no you will not immediately take away all the things the habit from your Fish and Wildlife Service has been one step at a time.
Boating organizations, private property owners and the Pacific Legal Foundation want fun at all cost and can pay well to get it.
Once again for information that seems to be missing in and around the office of Chuck Underwood, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
According to federal law, endangered status means the species is “in danger of extinction throughout all or a significant portion of its range.”Threatened is defined as “likely to become an endangered species within the foreseeable future throughout all or a significant portion of its range.”
So, why would the government change the classification to threatened, if a return to endangered status would be expected?
