The Endangered Species
Act was enacted in December 1973 as an environmental law. The act advocates for
the conservation of endangered species and the ecosystem on which they depend.
ESA decides to list a species as endangered due to any of the following
reasons; Current or possible destruction or modification to the habitat of the
species, declining population number of a species due to predation or diseases,
concern by environmentalists who request for the species to be listed for
monitoring, inadequate regulation of the species, and man-made or natural
factors affecting continued existence of the species. The species can also be
listed if it has never been used for commercial, scientific, recreational or
ESA is known to
classify species into two main categories; endangered and threatened. A
threatened species refers to one that is at risk of endangerment in the near
future whereas an endangered species refers to one that appears to become
extinct soon. This only means endangered species is a more serious category
than threatened species regarding extinction. As of today, animals have the
most endangered species than any other group. This is as a result of such
factors as diseases, loss of habitat, human predation, lack of food, and
climate change. The act protects species through two processes namely petition
and listing and candidate conservation processes.
The California Condor
is a type of bird species that once became extinct in the wild in the late
1980s. Its population was increased through a zoo breeding program, and they
were released back to the wild. However, these birds are still at risk of
extinction since some will still get electrocuted using power lines and others
will die due to lead poisoning from eating animal carcasses since the ban on
using bullets for hunting will not take effect until 2019.
