Help save California's flat-tailed horned lizards

Action: Wildlife Conservation

November 29, 2016   Action Alert ID# 454

 

In late 2014 the Center for Biological Diversity petitioned the California Fish and Game Commission to protect flat-tailed horned lizards -- and the commission agreed to consider these vanishing creatures for state Endangered Species Act protection.

Unfortunately agency staff subsequently recommended no protection for these lizards based on a review that was deeply flawed.

In a formal recommendation to the commission, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife ignored extensive habitat degradation occurring in many designated "conservation areas" and wrongly concluded that these lizards don't need the protection of California's laws. The agency is assuming that voluntary actions by federal agencies will suffice -- but that's a very bad assumption in the face of a Trump administration.

The commissioners will make their final decision on Dec. 8, which is why we need your help. Urge them to do the right thing and protect these lizards now.
