Feds propose $2 billion plan to protect seasonal pools
SACRAMENTO, Calif. —
Federal wildlife regulators on Thursday proposed a
$2 billion plan to rescue a score of tiny,
uniquely adapted but endangered plant and animal
species that dwell only in shallow ponds that come
to life each winter and disappear each summer
across much of California and southern Oregon.
farmers have over the years plowed under or over
75 percent of the vernal pools that once dotted 22
million acres of the coastal states.
