ABSTRACT
The article reflects on the failure to assure environmental protection under the U.S. Forest Service regulatory system for the fish coho salmon that are on the verge of extinction because of gold mining. It discusses the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit case of Karuk Tribe of California v. U.S. Forest Service, wherein the Tribe claimed that the Forest Service failed to comply with the U.S. Endangered Species Act as it approved Notices of Intent (NOI) to permit suction dredge mining.
