Justice Talking: Endangered Species and Drought

NPR's Justice Talking program presented a program concerning water policies nationwide and the problems that different regions face as the climate changes. Of course, the three-state dispute between Florida, Georgia, and Alabama was mentioned throughout. While the entire program is worth downloading, the segment on drought and the impact that water shortages have on endangered species is of particular interest. It features an interview with Kierán Suckling, the executive director and co-founder of the Center for Biological Diversity in Tucson, Arizona, which has secured protection for over 350 endangered species and 70 million acres of habitat in the U.S. He discusses the plight of endangered fresh water mussels in the Apalachicola River basin and the continuing crisis with water coming into Florida. He refers to the freshwater mussels as the biggest extinction crisis in North America and agrees that they are a "canary in the coal mine" group of species.

An mp3 of that segment is available here for download. See one of my previous posts on the subject here.
