Winter of 1999:
NABA to Petition for Endangered Species Status!

Based upon the data provided by Barry Williams, indicating that the few remaining individuals of the eastern population of Regal Fritillary constitute a separate subspecies, NABA intends to petition the United States Fish & Wildlife Service to list this eastern sub-species as an endangered species

In addition, because of the overwhelming evidence demonstrating the devastating and continuing decline in Regal Fritillaries across all of their former range, we intend to petition the Fish and Wildlife Service to list the entire species as an endangered species.
