There are a lot of reasons why endan is difficult to regulate.
Local politicians often resist setting gered species, including "taking" (harassing, harming, pursuing, aside land for preservation; recovery is costly; resource industries hunting, shooting, trapping, killing, capturing, or collecting) either such as oil, logging, or mining industries lobby hard against The total cost of recovery plans for the United States is estimated to be $5 billion.
The fines for violating the ESA are up to a year.
Vehicles and equipment used on a dozen charismatic species may be subject to forfeiture.
The Supreme condor, the Florida panther, and the grizzly bear each received around $13 million in critical habitat funding in 1995.
The 137 threatened survival must be protected on public or private land.

Politics and emo tion are more important than biology in our funding priorities.
Saving this habitat will benefit other species.
Protection and emotional reaction.
Recovering species can help reestablish populations in the western public and contribute to conserva Great Lakes states.
Killing, selling, or other recovery plans have been very successful.
The wise harming eagles is still against the law.
In 1967, the American alligator was listed as an "endangered" species because of hunting and habitat destruction.
Protection has been so effective that some species have been removed from the list.
In 1978 there was a test of the ESA.
Florida has at least 1 million alligators.
Sometimes restoring a single species can benefit a snail darter.
The case went all the way to the Supreme Court after environmental groups sued to stop the dam.
Alligators, dig out swimming federal agencies were not exempt from the law.
Opponents of holes, or wallows, that become dry-season refuges for fish and the law have tried to require that economic costs and other aquatic species.
American bison are being used in prairie benefits to reestablish the health and diversity of grass which is being tried to eliminate the law altogether.
By the 1950s, trapping and poisoning eliminated wolves from most fish and adults from their spawning grounds.
There are only a few hundred wolves left in the northeast and they have high economic costs.
The wolves were classified as extinct in the lower cheap electricity due to the passage of tric rate payers who have come to depend on abundant water.
Commercial and sport fish in 48 states were once worth $1 billion per year.
Wolf populations rebounded under protected status.
The species was declared recovered and de listed in the western benefits, as well as costs, in restoring species and their ecosystems.
Bald eagles, Eighty percent of the habitat for more than half of all falcons listed, are some of the successful recovery programs.
Forty years ago, most of the United States was on private land.
Is directly taking and killing them by 2007.
The population had rebounded to more than 9,800 pairs and many of the land owners resisted restrictions on how they used their own property to protect the birds.
They think this to be insignificant or worthless.
PDF to printer when the land has potential for economic development.
If property is worth millions of dollars, most owners don't want to be told they have to leave it undisturbed to protect a rare organ.
Landowners may be tempted to shoot, shovel, and shut up if they discover a species on their property.
Many feel they should be compensated for the lost value.
Landowners can harvest resources or build on part of their land as long as the species benefits overall.
In return for improving habitat in some areas, developers are allowed to destroy it or even take it.
Scientists and environmentalists are critical of HCPs, claiming that they often are based more on politics than biology, and that the potential benefits are often overstated.
Defenders argue that by making the ESA more friendly, they will be able to fit wildlife in the long run.
The Safe Harbor and No-Surprises policies are controversial proposals.
Any increase in an animal's population resulting from a property owner's voluntary good stewardship would not increase their responsibility or affect future land-use decisions according to the Safe Harbor clause.
If the property owner complies with the terms of the agreement, he or she can use the property.
The No-Surprises provision states that the property owner won't be faced with new requirements or regulations after entering into an HCP.
Change, uncertainty, dynamics, and flux are characteristic of all ecosystems.
Natural catastrophes and environmental events can make it necessary to modify plans in the future.
The U.S. ESA expired in 1992.
Congress has less well-known creatures.
If less unique, the community is protected.
The federal government is viewed with suspicion and hostility in the western United States due to the traditions of individual liberty and free will.
The law puts the welfare of plants and animals above economic interests, according to many people.
An alternative strategy for species protection is to identify and see the ESA as essential to protecting nature and preserving the viability of the planet.
It is seen as the single diversity, rather than the battle for the rare species at a time.
We risk spending most of our conserva species protection if we have criticisms of our current endangered only a few individuals.
The focus on individual tion funds on species that may be genetically doomed no matter organisms is perhaps the chief of these.
We protect wolves, a keystone species.
By concentrating on individual species or elephants, we can benefit entire ecological communities, but often we spend millions of dollars to breed plants or animals in order to save a single charismatic species that have no natural habitat where they can be released.

Most Americans don't think that you have much influence on wildlife if you live in an urban area.
There are ways you can help conserve the environment.
Restore native habitat.
Invasive species can be removed, native seeds can be gathered, or native vegetation can be replanted.

The leader of this new form of conservativism is J. Michael Scott, who was the project leader of the California condor recovery program in the 1980's.
In Hawaii, it regulated trade in living speci gered species.
Scott mens and products derived from listed species have not been found in Hawaii.
There are many vegetation types completely outside of threatened or endangered, and many species have been removed from countries where they are federally owned.
It is possible that the gaps between protected areas are from areas where the species are still in danger.
Eliminating markets for wildlife is an effec landscape that is rich in species.
The way to stop poaching is through computers and geographic information systems.
700 species mation systems make it possible to store, manage, retrieve, and threatened with extinction by international trade.
This approach seems to involve national cooperation in the protection of threatened species.
It is likely that more species will be saved every year.
Depletion of the key predator range approach has risks for the health of the ocean.
Global shark populations have declined by as much as 1.
One-third of all shark spe cies in a given region should be protected, as well as 70 to 80 percent of native spe cies.
Several Pacific Island nations have populations of less than 30 birds.
There are about 800 wild nesia, American Samoa, and the Cook Islands that have banned shark nene, and at least 1,000 in captivity, but there are worries about fishing in their territorial waters.

Zoos and captive breeding are important in protecting the environment.
There are limits to how many species we can keep in captivity.
There are rare species in the wild.
How much to save animals?
The International Rice Institute in the Philippines is one of the places where rare and extinct plant species can be found.
Plants with unique cultural or ecological significance may be reintroduced into native habitats after being cultivated for decades or even centuries in these gardens and seed banks.
Zoos used to depend on wild-caught animals for most of their collections.
Up to 80% of the animals caught died from the trauma of capture and shipping, which was a serious drain on wild popula tions.
Most mammals in North American zoos are produced by captive breeding programs.
Zoos are participating in breeding programs that can bring back extinct species to the wild.
The California condor is one of the best examples of successful captive breeding.
Nine of these birds existed in their native habitat in 1986.
Fearing the loss of the last condors, biologists captured them and brought them to the San Diego and Los Angeles zoos.
The population had reached 421 birds by the end of the year.
The land-dwelling nene was nearly extirpated in the 1950s.
Hawaii has been restored by captive breeding programs.
The wild population of land-dwelling geese has probably 25,000 of them, since fewer than 30 birds half a century ago.
Both wildlife continents have a prime example of rhinos.
It is more valuable due to overharvesting and successful restoration.
The rhinos used to range Botswana.
A single large horn can bring $300,000 across most of Africa.
The rhinos' poor eyesight and lack of fear make them easy to kill and they are next to elephants.
A large man can weigh a lot.
Two metric tons and up to 4 m (12 feet) demand for rhino horns was for handles of Jan vation officers who are generally outgunned and long.
There may have been a million rhinos in Eastern men in the 19th century.
The rhino horn was used as a weapon.
In the 1990s, there were only a few thousand animals that could be protected with tarized protection in parks and preserves.
Almost all of the species had now.
At least two rhinos are killed every year because of the current demand for rhino horn.
Seven or eight subspecies programs have proven to be highly successful.
If the southern black and global trade in rhino horns can be controlled, the southern white could be reintroduced in many more areas.
Some sci only in parks suggest that a solu could be guarded during the day and night.
There are only two spe that harvest rhinoceros horns.
The white can be sold in a legal market.
Saving rhinos are larger.
It has a wide sense of both the environment and the economy.

Preserving their habitat for eating leaves is one way the southern white rhinos are protected.
There were less than 50 southern white rhinos left in Africa in the 1960s.
The Kruger National Park brings in at least $4 many countries, with successful breeding programs in a cure for cancer, an aphrodisiac, a party drug, and a rigorous anti-poaching program, all from Vietnam.
The current price for rhino horn is as high as $60,000 per pound for the "big five" game animals, which include elephants, rhinos, lions, leopards, and buffalo.
This system can tell the Even given adequate area and habitat conditions to perpetuate a complete reproductive history of every animal of that species in every given species, continued inbreeding of a small population in captivity zoo in the world.
The same kinds of fertility and infant survival problems can be solved by comprehensive species survival plans.
Zoos often exchange animals or ship individuals long distances to natural habitat, which can be a problem with captive breeding.
Sometimes zoos are far away from species.
Many other species survive as long as rhinos and apes are umbrella species.
There is a partnership between the Minnesota Zoo and the Ujung Kulon National Park in Indonesia, which is home to the world's few remaining Javanese rhinos.
The zoo is helping to protect rhinos in their native habitat by providing patrol boats, radios, housing, training, and salaries for Indonesian guards.
Even though there are no plans to bring any rhinos to Minnesota, we can take solace in the fact that there are still a few in the wild.
Food, fiber, medicines, clean water, and new hope for the survival of numerous species are provided by biodiversity.
Less than 1 percent of species listed under the nearly one-third of native species in the United States are at risk of extinction.
There is a summary of the date species that are still waiting to be listed have suffered.
When the critical habitat on which they depend has been degraded or destroyed, protection and recovery programs can be difficult.
Increasingly, we prioritize which species we will protect and how we will support the solution of the problem between the owners and the land.
We need to be concerned about the other wildlife managers.
Because of its effectiveness, the act itself is organisms on which we depend for a host of ecological services, and opponents have succeeded in limiting its scope.
In the next two chapters, they want to eliminate it completely.
