Alberta’s Westslope Cutthroat Trout Designated as Threatened

March 30, 2013

Extract from the federal Canada Gazette, designated Alberta’s population of Westslope cutthroat trout an endangered species under the federal Species at Risk Act. Native populations of this fish have been “drastically reduced, by almost 80%, due to over-exploitation, habitat degradation and hybridization/competition with non-native trout.”

From a social-psychological point of view, it is the case, as regrettable as it is, that politicians are followers and only after the majority believes in something, do these followers follow.
