U.S. Endangered Species Act: The System Works
JUNE 22, 2016
A prime example is a report newly released by the Center for Biological Diversity which suggests that, by and large, in the United States, the Endangered Species Act is indeed helping to save the birds it protects. Less sanguine are prospects for endangered birds in the Pacific Islands with only a 61% stabilization/growth rate, due to a combination of factors (less funding, smaller populations when first listed as endangered, and all manner of invasive threats).
