The Endangered Species Act: Bang For Our Buck

The Endangered Species Act (ESA) doesn't just prevent individual species from going extinct. As our nation's most far-reaching wildlife conservation law, it protects the entire web of life that sustains us all. Though often hard to quantify, the benefits derived from conserving wildlife habitat and imperiled species reach every single one of us. We rely on innumerable plants and animals for medicine, jobs, recreation, clean water and abundant natural resources. By safeguarding critical wildlife habitat and creating a healthy environment, the ESA also ensures America's long-term prosperity.
