Flat-tailed horned lizard does not need added protection" (Palm Springs Desert Sun, 3/14/11)
"An already protected species of lizard in the Coachella Valley does not require added safeguards under the federal Endangered Species Act, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced Monday. The federal agency initially withdrew endangered species protection for the flat-tailed horned lizard in 1997, following a rangewide management strategy adopted with Fish and Wildlife and state agencies in California and Arizona. But that withdrawal was legally challenged several times by environmental groups."
