WILDEARTHGUARDIANS WINS ONE AGAINST NEVADA WILDLIFE SERVICES
WildEarthGuardians sued Nevada Wildlife Services in 2012, claiming Wildlife Services was using outdated NEPA data to support program activities. After successfully beating back a standing issue, the case went forward. After a year of negotiation, a settlement was reached. Wildlife Services will stop all killing activity in Nevada wilderness and wilderness study areas. It will also stop using the 1994 EIS to support program activities around the country and will produce new NEPA data to guide program activity. This may turn out to be a big deal because Wildlife Services will have to adjust its activities to fit current science. If it doesn’t, it’ll get sued again. Many thanks to WildEarthGuardians for taking this issue to court and congratulations on its success. Read the settlement here.
