The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced on March 15 that it will consider whether to include the Western bumblebee and the Yellow-banded bumblebee on the list of protected species under the Endangered Species Act (ESA).  Currently, no bees are listed as threatened or endangered under the ESA. That’s a little surprising, given all the attention Colony Collapse Disorder and bee disappearance have been getting for the last few years.

Piping plovers are small migratory shorebirds that can be recognized by their short, orange beak with a black tip and orange legs. These little birds rely on their feathered disguise for survival. In Canada, this species lives along the Atlantic coast and in wetlands in the northern Great Plains and western Great Lakes. Since 1985, the Committee on the Status of Wildlife in Canada (COSEWIC) has designated the piping plover as endangered or at risk of extinction. (Photo by Andrea Drake)

Prairie crocus in full bloom; one tale connects the creation of the species with the west wind, Zephyr. A forbidden love between Anemone, a nymph, and Zephyr caused an angry Flora (the goddess of flowers) to banish the nymph from her court. When the broken-hearted Anemone died, Zephyr persuaded Venus to change her body into a flower that would bloom when spring began. (Photo by NCC)
