Plan to Save Endangered Species in Roosevelt County Criticized

A New Mexico Environmental Group has criticized the Bureau of Land Management's new plans for two endangered species in Roosevelt County.

Santa Fe based Forest Guardians says the plan will do more harm than good.

They say the lesser prairie chicken has suffered serious declines in parts of it's five state range.

They also say the sand dune lizard is so endangered, scientists fear they cannot prevent it's extinction.

In addition to Roosevelt, the plan also covers Chaves, Eddy, and Lea Counties.
