Conservation Groups Intend to Sue FWS for Failing to Protect the Streak Horned Lark

The Center for Biological Diversity and the Audubon Society of Portland delivered an Endangered Species Act notice of intent to sue the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (FWS) to better protect the streaked horned lark, a bird found in Washington and Oregon. FWS listed the streaked horned lark as threatened instead of endangered, affording it fewer protections and exempting all agricultural activities that are direct threats to its survival.
