The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has provided notice that the Emperor Penguin, with a habitat in Antarctica, will be added as an endangered species under the Endangered Species Act, and that the Penguin has become endangered as a result of climate change. What is the impact of this on businesses, nonprofits, governmental and other organizations and entities? Well . . . it is too soon to know, and that will depend on whether the Penguin’s new designation will be contested and will be upheld, and what new climate change or related regulations will be proposed and contested or enacted as a result. More to follow. Here is the link to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service notice of the designation https://www.fws.gov/press-release/2022-10/emperor-penguin-gets-endangered-species-act-protections

Remember, every case and situation is different. It is important to obtain and evaluate all of the evidence that is available, and to apply that evidence to the applicable standards and laws. You do need to consult with an attorney and other professionals about your particular situation. This post is not a solicitation for legal or other services inside of or outside of California, and, of course, this post only is a summary of information that changes from time to time, and does not apply to any particular situation or to your specific situation. So . . . you cannot rely on this post for your situation or as legal or other professional advice or representation.
Also note – sometimes I include links to or comments about materials from other organizations or people – if I do so, it is because I believe that the materials are worthwhile reading or viewing; however, that doesn’t mean that I don’t or might not have a different view about some or even all of the subject matter or materials, or that I necessarily agree with, or agree with everything about or relating to, that organization or person, or those materials or the subject matter.
