Nonprofit sues US to protect bush in northeastern Caribbean


SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico — The Center for Biological Diversity on Tuesday sued the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service for failing to protect an endangered shrub once considered extinct that grows in some parts of the U.S. and the British Virgin Islands.

The shrub known as marrón bacora can grow up to 3 meters in height and produces lilac flowers with a yellow center. It is found on St. John in the US Virgin Islands and on Tortola in the neighboring British Virgin Islands.
