Four pesticides have been added to the Endangered Species Act lawsuit

The Center for Biological Diversity filed a suit saying that the USFWS was not complying with the Endangered Species Act when it approved six pesticide registrations.

Four additional chemicals have been added to the Endangered Species Act lawsuit.

The Center for Biological Diversity initially filed a suit saying that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service was not complying with the Endangered Species Act when it approved six pesticide registrations. The environmental group now wants atrazine, simazine, methomyl, and carbaryl added to that suit.

Since the original filing, research found chlorpyrifos would put 37 species in jeopardy, and diazinon would put 26 species at risk. The EPA found similar situations that the four new pesticides propose all of which could have a negative impact on growers if taken out of the market.
