This hugely important case involves the potential construction of a huge copper mine slated to be built outside of Tuscon, Arizona. We also discuss the importance of the Endangered Species Act and how recent changes imposed on it by the current administration limit the act’s protective powers, and what he is doing to help fight these changes.
