The article reports that endangered aplomado falcons in New Mexico may be stripped of their protections because the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will be going through with a controversial plan to release up to 150 captive-bred aplomado falcons. The falcons which will be released are not defined as critical to the species' survival. Hence, they would not be given the protection provided for an endangered species. Their presence would also remove protection for any wild falcons already in southern New Mexico, including those on Otero Mesa.
