Transcript of Endangered Species Act

Endangered Species Act We share this planet with many species. It is our responsibility to protect them, both for their sakes and our own. - Pamela A. Matson The Endangered Species Act went into effect in 1973 It's a combination of 2 previous laws: the Endangered Species Preservation Act and the Endangered Species Conservation Act It has been amended several times since 1973 The Endangered Species Act was created to prevent further elimination of animal and plant species in the U.S. Species Include: Birds Insects Fish Reptiles Mammals Crustaceans Flowers Grasses Trees Initial laws were created because of the plight of the whooping crane and the growing movement to save the whales The Endangered Species Act was created to combine the initial laws and to add onto the first two acts.
