The Center for Biological Diversity (CBD) plans to sue the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) for not protecting 19 wildlife species under the Endangered Species Act.

The species include a clam, five butterflies and 13 birds. The group said USFWS acknowledged in early August the species warranted protection, but protections were “precluded” by other agency work.

“Perpetuating the Trump administration’s snail pace of protecting foreign wildlife is unacceptable for the Biden administration in this global extinction crisis,” said Tanya Sanerib, CBD international legal director.

If the agency does not publish a proposed rule for the 19 species by mid-October, CBD will sue, the group said.
