Next up for federal de-listing: bald eagle

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

The madness continues.

The Fish and Wildlife Service is expected to drop the U.S. national bird from the federal list of threatened and endangered species in June.

Environmentalists and scientists widely support the move because of the species' success since a 1972 ban on the pesticide DDT and since it was protected by the Endangered Species Act in 1978.

Still, many eagle experts are worried, warning that the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act, the law that will protect bald eagles after delisting, does not adequately shield the nesting trees and feeding perches eagles depend on.
Who exactly are the "environmentalists and scientists" who are supporting this because Reuters somehow forgot to mention them by name?
