Endangered Species Act Saves Vast Majority of Species Under Its Protection

Noah Greenwald

The success of the Endangered Species Act is plain to the millions of Americans who have enjoyed seeing a bald eagle fly across the sky, heard the howl of wolves echo across the night or witnessed the splash of a breaching humpback whale.

But this bedrock conservation law, the strongest of any nation, has saved far more species than these well-known examples.

A new study, which I co-authored, found the Act has saved roughly 99 percent of protected species from extinction since the law was created in 1973.

Oh, that only if Trump Administration Officials were on that Endangered Species List.

Everyone should be willing to donate a few bucks to a worthy organization that has a 99% success rate.
