BUSH ADMINISTRATION ORDERED TO REVIEW WESTERN SPECIES: "A federal judge has ordered the Bush administration to explain what prevents it from listing rare species in four Western states as endangered or threatened," according to the Associated Press, 6/28. Conservation groups, including the Center for Biological Diversity, Western Watersheds Project and Committee for the High Desert, sued Interior Secretary Gale Norton to list and protect the southern Idaho ground squirrel, the sand dune lizard and the Tahoe yellow cress plant. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has categorized the species as candidates under the Endangered Species Act.
