Managing attorney Mark Miller, and attorney and College of Public Interest Law fellow Christina Martin, of PLF’s Atlantic Center, discuss a new lawsuit that challenges the listing of the manatee as “endangered” under the U.S. Endangered Species Act, even though federal officials’ own scientific findings say that the species, found in the warm waters of Florida and elsewhere on the Atlantic Coast, should be “downlisted” to “threatened.”  Miller and Martin say improving numbers of manatees should be celebrated, and the Fish and Wildlife Service should abide by its 2007 data and the rule of law by downlisting the manatee.
