Bush's Cactus


As the Bush era comes to a close, and new rules are promulgated at the last minute, the Denver Post tracks the consequences for endangered cactus for us.

LATE-TERM RULE CHANGES
Bush’s push to be felt across West

“There are at least a couple of examples right here in Colorado where species were overlooked in agency evaluations that Fish and Wildlife raise,” Erin Robertson, senior biologist for the Center for Native Ecosystems.

For example, in an oil-and- gas lease on South Shale Ridge, outside De Beque, the BLM failed to note the presence of the threatened Colorado hookless cactus.

Now in this case, the leases have been changed to keep protections for the cactus in place, so everything is still OK in the cactus world as the Bushes leave.
