Save Endangered Species From Environmental Regulations

Shawn Regan writes about the flaws of the Endangered Species Act in Reason.

The C3 Take
  • The Endangered Species Act (ESA), which was intended to protect animals such as the Arctic grayling in Montana, has sometimes hindered the conservation of these animals.
  • Landowners are often weary to engage in conservation efforts due to the ESA’s ambiguity and labyrinth of regulations.
  • Lawmakers should consider ways to reduce burdens under the Act and update protections in the ESA to increase local conservation efforts.

“As we approach the 50th anniversary of the Endangered Species Act later this year, it’s worth asking how the act can be reformed to better accomplish its primary goal: to recover species. After all, endangered species have it bad enough. We should make sure the laws designed to protect them don’t make things worse.”
