Suit Filed by NRDC to Protect Rusty Patched Bumblebee

The Natural Resources Defense Council today sued the Trump Administration for illegally suspending the rule to put the rusty patched bumblebee on the endangered species list, just one day before federal protections were set to take effect. The rusty patched bumblebee has lost almost 90 percent of its range in the past 20 years. It is the first bumblebee ever listed under the Endangered Species Act.
