ABSTRACT
This article describes efforts of the National Wildlife Federation and Golden Gate Audubon to restore some legal protections to imperiled wildlife that were removed by rule changes to the Endangered Species Act by the George W. Bush administration just before leaving office. The changes do not require independent scientific reviews to determine if projects pose any harm to at-risk wildlife.
