CRITICAL HABITAT WON BY THE CENTER through OUR 757 SPECIES AGREEMENT, 2012
On July 12, 2011, the Center for Biological Diversity struck a historic legal settlement with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, requiring the agency to make initial or final decisions on whether to add hundreds of imperiled plants and animals to the endangered species list by 2018. Here we have a map showing most of the critical habitat designations and proposals we won through that settlement in 2012 alone, from the U.S. Southwest's Acuña cactus to Puerto Rico's coquí llanero frog.
