Good News for Sturgeons

September 24, 2013 | Marine Animals
Good news! The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (USF&WS)  has announced that the agency has agreed with Friends of Animals that 10 heavily exploited sturgeon species deserve to be considered for legal protection under the Endangered Species Act.  Acting on a petition filed by FoA and WildEarth Guardians, USF&WS acknowledged that these fish are likely being driven to extinction by humans seeking to exploit these animals for caviar and meat or by other human activities that destroy these animals and their habitat.
