The rusty-patched bumble bee was scheduled to be added to the endangered species list on Friday but The U.S.
Fish and Wildlife Service has announced that process will need to be reviewed due to an executive order from the president.
Lobbyists who oppose the Endangered Species Act have celebrated the decision.
The population of the rusty-patched bumble bee has plunged by 90 percent since the early 1990's following a trend that has seen bee populations plummeting in general.
But on January 20th, Donald Trump became president and signed a sweeping executive order that froze all pending regulations for 60 days to review questions of fact, law and policy they raise.
The decision to delay the bee s listing as endangered is a direct consequence of that order.
