Rusty patched bumble bee recommended for endangered list

from Winston-Salem Journal

Federal wildlife officials have made a formal recommendation to list the rusty patched bumblebee as an endangered species because it has disappeared from about 90 percent of its historic range in just the past 20 years. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service made the recommendation after the Xerces Society, based in Portland, Oregon, petitioned the agency on behalf of the bee in 2013 and presented studies showing that it was struggling because of a combination of disease, habitat loss, climate change and overuse of pesticides on commercial crops. more
