A California Court of Appeal has ruled that bumblebees are eligible for protection as threatened or endangered “fish” under the California Endangered Species Act (CESA). The opinion reversed the trial court’s ruling in favor of Western Growers and six other agricultural groups. The trial court had concluded that the CESA, which extends to fish, mammals, birds, amphibians, reptiles and plants does not extend to insects.
