Another Slump in Endangered Species => Enforcement of Federal Laws

Enforcement of the federal laws designed to protect migratory birds, endangered species, marine mammals and other kinds of wild life has slumped during the Bush Administration, according to authoritative Justice Department data.

The decline was documented in an analysis of a special new data base comparing the number of individuals and corporations charged with violating such laws during the first term of President Clinton, the second Clinton term and the Bush years. The data were obtained and analyzed by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC).

Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse a project of Syracuse University is releasing a unique new series of special bulletins about environmental enforcement during the Clinton and Bush years. The bulletins, based on very extensive Justice Department data obtained under the Freedom of Information Act, authoritatively document the shifting policies of the federal government during the last twelve years.

This is one of the best government databases available. Make sure you read these and see how they relate to your issues. Journalists will use and quote data from TRAC. These reports are just being released so you can put your own message and branding on the data.

I also think they have assistance for environmental nonprofits to get access through foundation support.
