 PIPING PLOVERS GAIN PROTECTION UNDER TENTATIVE AGREEMENT
 
 WASHINGTON, DC, January 24, 2000 (ENS) - The U.S. Fish and Wildlife 
 Service (USFWS) and environmental groups have reached a tentative 
 agreement over a three year old lawsuit to protect critical habitat for 
 piping plovers, an endangered migratory bird with breeding grounds in the 
 U.S. and Canada. The agreement designates critical habitat for breeding 
 populations in the Great Lakes and Great Plains. (SNIP)
