    We are desperately seeking to save the Mitchel’s satyre butterfly in northeastern Indiana. Its habitat is a fenn that would probably be ruined if the Too Tail Dairy is allowed to locate there. We are presently suing,but we are not as powerful as the Vbreba Hoff Co out of the Netherlands. Our group is called Hoosiers for Sustainable Agriculture. Please help us if you can

    Are the Yellowstone Bison on that list?

    no, the Yellowstone Bison are not on the list.

    It’s pretty neat though – It’s good to see such effort behind listing species that are not necessarily “charismatic” (I hate that characterization). It will be interesting to see what happens.

    My guess is that if the list did include bison, the petition would not get a second look.

    I hope the petition makes some progress as it may open the door to going forward once again, and gaining the precious ground that was lost as a result of the bush admin.
