A federal court ruled on June 30, 2017, that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency must consider harm to protected plants and animals before approving new pesticides.
 
The ruling came in response to a challenge by conservation groups of the agency’s registration of insecticide cyantraniliprole, a novel insecticide may impact on endangered butterflies and other native pollinators.
 
The three-judge panel found that the EPA failed to follow the law during its pesticide review and registration process and ordered the agency to assess harm to native species and report back to the court every six months on its progress. Use of cyantraniliprole will continue during the agency review.
 
For four years the EPA has worked with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and National Marine Fisheries Service to assess pesticides’ harms to endangered species and to develop reasonable, on-the-ground conservation measures to protect species.
