INFORMATION

Biologists have expressed growing concerns about the decline of the lizard in its Southwestern habitats, but after three proposals in the past 15 years, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service still refuses to list the lizard as an endangered species. Thankfully, a federal court recently demanded the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service reassess its refusal. We need to convince them to make the right decision for the lizard this time!

The Bush Administration promoted urban development and corporate interests at the expense of the natural environment and many plants and animals, including the flat-tailed horned lizard. In California, the lizards have lost almost their entire habitat to a growing metropolis.

But now we have entered a new political age and we must make it a priority to encourage our leaders to protect our valuable wildlife. Tell Interior Secretary Ken Salazar to ensure that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service protects the flat-tailed horned lizard and adds it to the list of endangered species.


Thank you for everything you do for animals!
