Hudson River Is 2nd Most Endangered River In America

(New York, NY) -- Conservation activists say the Hudson River is America's second-most endangered river. 

According to the environmental group American Rivers, only the Gila River in New Mexico poses more of a threat to wildlife. Their concern is that storm surge barriers installed after Superstorm Sandy could block the natural flow of fish and other species. Advocates are calling on the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to install natural barriers instead, which they say would allow wetlands, barrier islands and oyster reefs to return.
