Center for Biological Diversity to fight for ribbon seals

ANCHORAGE, Alaska — The Center for Biological Diversity says it will keep fighting for the ribbon seal.

The group petitioned to list ribbon seals as threatened or endangered because of shrinking sea ice.

On Tuesday federal wildlife officials announced the ribbon seals don’t currently face extinction, and do not need to be protected under the Endangered Species Act.

The Center for Biological Diversity says it will file a notice of intent to sue, saying the denial ignores science on global warming and the law.
