Conservation groups announced today they are planning to file a lawsuit to list the Ribbon Seal under the Endangered Species Act. Greenpeace and the Center for Biological Diversity hope their intent to sue will convince the new Obama Administration to grant federal protections to the Ribbon Seal. The Bush administration denied the species listing under the ESA in December, during its final days in office.
