Lake Sturgeon Will Get Endangered Species Decision in 2024

Good news, everyone! America’s lake sturgeon WILL be considered for protection under the Endangered Species Act! That will come a bit later than we’d hoped, but unfortunately Congress, some years ago, hamstrung the decision-making process by capping funding for it. That budget is still where it was 10 years ago, despite the increasing threats to an increasing number of native species. In the meantime, we hope to persuade officials to actually begin conservation efforts for our long-threatened #INlakesturgeon in southern Indiana. Please read this press release from the Center for Biological Diversity. They deserve your support too.
