Unfortunately the Bush Administration recently declined to list this race of the Red Knot as endangered so that a couple of big fishing companies could continue to clean up at the expense of the environment. All the research currently indicates that this race will be extinct by 2010. Sadly, Bush and his type will probably continue to flourish.
