FILE - In this Oct. 5, 1994, file photo, two bison graze in a meadow in Yellowstone National Park, Wyo. New research shows when bison heavily graze an area, the grass greens up earlier and faster and stays green for a much longer period of time. Researchers with the park and area universities say the bison are able to graze in one area for two to three months rather than having to move to higher elevations to follow new plant growth. Sensors on NASA satellites are able to observe the grassland dynamics. (AP Photo/Dave Zalubowski, File)

The continued existence of two species of insects is in doubt because climate change is melting away the glaciers and year-round snowfields they depend on, U.S. wildlife officials said Wednesday, Nov. 20, 2019. The western glacier stonefly and the meltwater lednian stonefly found in the northern Rocky Mountains will be protected as threatened species under the federal Endangered Species Act.
