(Lansing-MPRN) The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has placed the northern long-eared bat on the “threatened” species list. But the agency stopped short of saying the species is threatened with extinction by a fungus that’s already killed millions of bats. 


(MPRN-Lansing) - Michigan has joined the appeal of a federal judge’s decision to restore endangered species protections to the gray wolf. Animal rights and wildlife groups challenged the de-listing in an effort to stop wolf hunting in Michigan and other Midwestern states. 

There have been evidence or sightings in 11 counties in the eastern U.P.

Department of Natural Resources officially added the species on Monday
