“The Endangered Species Act May Be Neglecting The Animals That Need It Most”
The U.S. Endangered Species Act has helped prevent extinctions for more than four decades. Throughout that time, millions of dollars have gone toward saving landmark species like the bald eagle, the California condor, and the grizzly bear. Now a new study is questioning whether the underfunded act needs to be redistributed more fairly to get the most bang for its buck, as it is overly helping some species while neglecting others.
