The Endangered Species Act at Thirty is a comprehensive, multidisciplinary review of issues surrounding the Endangered Species Act, with a specific focus on the act's actual implementation record over the past thirty years/5(6). Since the s, the Endangered Species Act (ESA), by virtue of its regulatory impact, has been a frequent subject of policy analysis. In this comprehensive history and critique of the ESA, Brian Czech and Paul R. Krausman incorporate the new model of policy design theory to frame a larger discussion about conservation biology and American democracy/5. This book was assigned to me for my Endangered Ecosystems Seminar class. I really enjoyed this book because it did a great job laying out the important aspects of the Endangered Species Act. It also provided differing views and opinions regarding the success and failures of the ESA.4/5. A practice-focused resource, Basic Practice Series: ESA explains the fundamentals of the federal Endangered Species Act and its implementing ESA, its implementing regulations, court decisions, and agency guidance create an important and legally enforceable determination to protect, conserve and recover endangered and threatened fish, wildlife, and plants.
Endangered Species: Save Our Species Coloring Book. There are over 1, different species in the United States that are listed as threatened or endangered. This picture book will introduce you to 21 plant and animal species found in the United States, nearly all of which are either endangered . The Endangered Species Act (ESA) provides a program for the conservation of threatened and endangered plants and animals and the habitats in which they are found. The lead federal agencies for implementing ESA are the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) and the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Fisheries Service. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service developed the Species Status Assessment (SSA) framework as part of the ongoing effort to improve implementation of the Endangered Species Act (ESA) and enhance conservation success. An SSA is a focused, repeatable, and rigorous assessment of a species' ability to maintain self-sustaining populations over time. When the interior least tern was listed under the Endangered Species Act in , there were only a few dozen of the bird's nesting sites scattered across America's Great Plains and Lower Mississippi Valley. Today there are more t interior least terns at more than nesting sites in 18 states. News Release» Get to Know Your Species.
When Congress passed the Endangered Species Act (ESA) in , it recognized that our rich natural heritage is of "esthetic, ecological, educational, recreational, and scientific value to our Nation and its people." It further expressed concern that many of our nation's native plants and animals were in danger of becoming extinct. The authors of this book stress that saving every species is impossible, given the steady encroachment of modern life on nature, but that is what the Endangered Species Act by: A hybrid of policy analysis and ecological assessment, The Endangered Species Act: History, Conservation Biology, and Public Policy will appeal to scholars and students in the fields of natural resource policy and law, conservation biology, political science, wildlife ecology, and environmental history, and to professionals at agencies involved in wildlife conservation. The landmark Endangered Species Act prohibits any trade in endangered species or their products and requires that federal agencies assess the impact on wildlife habitat of proposed projects—much as NEPA requires an environmental impact statement. These laws are often the only tool that conservationists have to prevent the development or other exploitation (e.g., logging or mining) of .
