"The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) announced it is initiating a 90-day review to determine whether the threatened Marbled Murrelet should be delisted under the Endangered Species Act. The agency’s proposal is based on the assumption, discredited by a U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) report, that the murrelet’s population in Washington, Oregon and northern California is not distinct from other murrelet populations in British Columbia and Alaska."
