The Key deer is a subspecies of the whitetail deer. They only live on one small island of the Florida Keys. At one point, there were only 75 of them left. Now, there are more than 750. This has been such a success story that the Florida Fish and Wildlife Service wants them removed from the endangered species list. The director of the FWS wrote:
This determination is based on the best available scientific and commercial information, which indicates that the threats to [Key Deer] have been eliminated or reduced to the point that the species no longer meets the definition of an endangered or threatened species.Florida Fish and Wildlife Service Director Leo Miranda
The left can’t have that. Instead of being happy and taking the win in saving an endangered species, they need emergencies to give themselves power. So they insist that the deer are still endangered by climate change, and use 2017’s Hurricane Irma as evidence that climate change is going to wipe out the deer. They claim that rising sea levels will wipe out the deer in 100 years unless we do something.
Never let a crisis go to waste when there is money to made and power to be wielded.
