Do Iliamna Lake Seals Warrant an Endangered Species Listing? Video – Last week, National Marine Fisheries Service officials made the decision to consider listing a harbor seal population in Lake Iliamna as endangered or threatened–yet another piece of wood on the controversial fire that is the Pebble Mine project.”It’s a small population of seals,”  Center for Biological Diversity biologist Kiersten Lippmann said. “There are only 250 to 350 individuals in the lake and small variations in their environment can push the population towards extinction.” continued

    “The endangered species act was meant to protect things and bring them back,” Shively said. “The act is now being used by the environment movement to stop development.”

    I am against Pebble Mine, but this statement by Mr. Shively s absolutely correct, because that IS what they shamelessly do.
    I hope fishermen in Alaska are smart enough to realize that.
