New rules for endangered species


Recommended Posts

Can you put a price on saving the last snow leopard or polar bear ?

 

On Monday, new changes to the Endangered Species Act (ESA) were announce. Under the new rules, threatened species would no longer be automatically awarded the same protections as species classified as endangered. The change would for the first time allow regulators to consider the economic impact of habitat protection — such as lost revenue from a ban on logging or mining — in their decision making.
