"Endangered Species: Bumblebee Listing Buzzes By Trump Reg Freeze"

"The Fish and Wildlife Service [Tuesday] quietly added a wide-ranging insect to the endangered species list.

The rusty patched bumblebee listing was finalized in early January, but it was prevented from taking effect by a 60-day freeze on new regulations that President Trump imposed on his first day in office.

That executive order pushed back the effective date of the listing until today, FWS announced in a Federal Register notice Feb. 10 — the day the bee was originally supposed to receive Endangered Species Act protections."
