Easy enough put, the Endangered Species Act is the powerfulest law ever. The farmers thought there should be a law that would help keep birds from dying out. There were 109 birds that were put on the protection list. The law was made in 1973.
Today there are 1183 species on the list, with 256 species being considered to add. The authorization of funding for ESA expired on 10-2-92, but Congress has given funds each year since for the program to run.
The ESA is run mostly by the "Fish and Wildlife"
but the "National Marine Fisheries Service" has a big responsibility for
protecting certain fish.
