Enviromental group pushes for Beluga decision

The conservation organization Cook Inletkeeper has joined with the Marine Mammal Commission in sending letters to the federal government requesting them to step up the timeline for a decision on whether or not to list the Cook Inlet Beluga under the Endangered Species Act. NMFS decided in April to delay the listing decision until the annual count in June.
