Grahame Madge,of the RSPB said: "It’s good news that we have more genetic diversity than we thought but the flipside is that conservation groups already struggling with high numbers of endangered species have suddenly seen their in-trays become larger."
"We're seeing longer fire seasons. Our fire seasons are 60-80 days longer than they were just three decades ago. We're also seeing growth of houses near forests and that's causing us to have to spend more money to fight fires."
"Unfortunately, this is one of many cases of the Fish and Wildlife Service ignoring the needs of these very rare birds. Fewer than 1,000 are left in the wild in California, so they desperately need protection, including measures to make sure they survive the solar-energy boom" said Anderson
"It is an incredible honor to have Yuma at the Wildlife Park," said Clif Maxwell, district chief for the Florida Park Service. "While we are saddened he cannot be returned to his natural habitat, this will provide visitors to Homosassa Springs the opportunity to view one of Florida's rarest and most iconic endangered species. We are very proud to add Yuma to the Homosassa family and will enjoy watching him grow."
