Seems the biggest threat to California wildlife isn’t logging, dam-building or hunting — it’s urban sprawl. The NATIONAL WILDLIFE FEDERATION has just released a study showing that residential and commercial construction is the biggest threat to two-thirds of the animals and plants on the state’s official list of threatened or endangered species.

“This research underscores that wildlife imperilment is not just something that’s happening ‘out there,’ far removed from metropolitan areas, but is increasingly occurring ‘right here,’ where the majority of people live and work,” said Mark Van Putten, the NWF’s president.

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
