This begs the question: Why were they even on our endangered species list?
They look nice and all, but what business is it of ours if Australian birds die off?
Not that they are. While the turquoise parrot has fertility issues believed to be related to in-breeding, both have robust populations after facing extinction a half-century ago.
The Fish and Wildlife Service announced its action on Tuesday, ending two months of regulatory inaction after President Trump imposed a freeze on regulations upon assuming office.
With Ryan Zinke installed as Interior secretary, the agency is back in business.
“Species experts now widely characterize populations of the scarlet-chested parrot and the turquoise parrot as stable, with potential increases noted for the turquoise parrot in some areas,” the agency wrote in the Federal Register, which is the publication that lists new rules and regulations.
Of course, the Marxists are mad.
From the Washington Examiner:
The Center for Biological Diversity delivered more than 55,000 postcards from citizens around the country, urging the Trump administration not to remove the protections.
Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke received word of the campaign and blocked the postcards from being delivered to the agency, the group said.
"The center had originally planned to deliver the postcards to Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, but the Department of the Interior refused to accept them or communicate with the center's organizers," a statement from the group said. "Today they were delivered to the headquarters of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service."Maybe he should forward them to Australia.
