Lawsuit Launched to Protect Endangered Rusty Patched Bumblebee
Illinois Highway Project Would Destroy Bee Habitat
CHICAGO— The Center for Biological Diversity today filed a formal notice of intent to sue the Federal Highway Administration and Illinois Department of Transportation for failing to prevent harm to the endangered rusty patched bumblebee.
Rusty patched bumblebees are pollinators that are vital for healthy ecosystems and food security. They were once widely found across the upper Midwest and Northeast, but their numbers have plummeted dramatically since the 1990s, largely because of habitat destruction. They are the only mainland U.S. bee species to have obtained federal protection...
“The Endangered Species Act is 99 percent effective at protecting our most imperiled wildlife, but it can only work when its mandates are followed,” said Parent. “Since these agencies have ignored the bee’s presence, we’ve got no choice but to take legal action to force officials to protect these important little animals.”
