LYNX LISTED AS THREATENED:
The FWS has finally listed the Canadian lynx in the lower 48 states as a threatened species say GREEN* sources 3/21/00. After numerous lawsuits and delays the listing is a step forward, but the nearly 20 years since the first listing petition in 1982 has resulted in the species becoming "perilously close to extinction." Some conservationists are already saying that the final rule does not adequately ensure the "survival and recovery" of the lynx throughout significant parts of its range, especially for the highly imperiled populations in the Northeast, Great Lakes, Cascades and southern Rockies where an endangered listing was definitely warranted.
*GREEN is a project of Defenders of Wildlife designed to serve grassroots wildlife and wildlands advocates.
