As human populations grow and more and more plant and animal species become endangered, it is important for students at this level to become aware of the types of efforts that are underway to try to protect our vital global ecosystems and the kinds of people, groups, and institutions that are conducting them.
It is important for students to ultimately see their government's role in addressing the ongoing endangerment crisis—as through enforcement of the Endangered Species Act and the variety of conservationist agencies and scientific research efforts that are funded through public taxation.

 GEO-3: GLOBAL ENVIRONMENT OUTLOOK
Note: ‘Threatened species’ include those categorized by IUCN in 2000 as Critically Endangered, Endangered and Vulnerable (Hilton-Taylor 2000); adding totals for each region does not give a global total because a species may be threatened in more than one region.
The impact of decline or loss of species on the provision of environmental services is difficult to evaluate because the relationship between species diversity and ecosystem function is still unclear.
Among the most notable are the 1973 Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES), and the 1979 Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals (CMS) — or the Bonn Convention — which was developed to conserve terrestrial, marine and migratory bird species throughout their range.

When the population of certain species begins to dwindle, it is easy to think that species is the only one to suffer.
During this project we will study what factors have influenced the status of a species (either threatened or endangered) and report on why that species is in the condition that it is. We will then determine what should be done to help this species recover.

 Cascadia Scorecard Weblog: Endangering Species
Endangered species may be endangered by the very agencies that are supposed to protect them.
Species listed under the Endangered Species Act--everything from bald eagles in Washington to timber wolves in Idaho to blind cave-dwelling spiders in Texas--are legally supposed to be protected from harm that might jeopardize their continued existence.
Private landowners are protected under a "no surprises" clause that allows them free reign to destroy endangered species and their habitat, even if scientific assessments of the magnitude of the harm change a decade or more later.

 Comments Solicited on Barndoor Skate Endangered Species Listing   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-31)
Section 4(b)(3)(A) of the Endangered Species Act (16 U.S.C. 1544) requires that the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) make a finding on whether a petition to list, delist, or reclassify a species presents substantial scientific or commercial information to indicate that the petitioned action may be warranted.
Finally, the petitioner requested that other similarly appearing species of skate also be designated as threatened or endangered so as to insure the protection of the barndoor skate.
In order to fully examine the species' status so that a determination can be made under the ESA and under the Magnuson Stevens Act, NMFS intends to present an assessment of barndoor skate at the 30th Northeast Regional Stock Assessment Workshop to be held in November 1999.

 EPA: Federal Register: Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants; Proposed Spec
The implementing regulations for threatened wildlife generally incorporate the prohibitions of Section 9 of the Endangered Species Act (Act) of 1973, as amended, for endangered wildlife, except when a ``special rule'' promulgated pursuant to Section 4(d) of the Act has been issued with respect to a particular threatened species.
At the time the northern spotted owl, Strix occidentalis caurina, (spotted owl) was listed as a threatened species in 1990, the Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) did not promulgate a special Section 4(d) rule and, therefore, all of the Section 9 prohibitions, including the ``take'' prohibitions, became applicable to the species.
Therefore, all of the Section 9 prohibitions for endangered species were made applicable to the spotted owl throughout its range, including the prohibitions against ``take'' that apply to endangered species under the Act.
