ENDANGERED SPECIES -- Following the federal government's recent announcement of plans to act on 250 endangered species and Washington state's plan to release 100 endangered pygmy rabbits in special habitats in Douglas County,  The New York Times has published a good overview of endangered species from coast to coast.

Better yet, in observance of Endangered Species Day (Sunday) the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has set up a good Endangered Species website with quizes, podcasts and other info about critters struggling for survival.

That website is in addition to the federal agency's excellent Endangered Species program site.
