Environmental Lawyer Honored
Bravo to our friend Kassie Siegel of the Center for Biological Diversity. She was named one of the 10 most influential California lawyers of the decade by the Daily Journal. The listing cited Siegel's work in petitioning to have the polar bear listed as a threatened species under the Endangered Species Act.
"Kassie has been a tireless advocate for polar bears and other species facing extinction from climate change. These animals have a much better chance at survival with her on their side," said Kieran Suckling, the Center's executive director.
