Cato Daily Podcast: How the Endangered Species Act Works (and Doesn’t)

  • Jonathan Wood
  • PERC’s Jonathan Wood spoke with Cat Daily Podcast host Caleb Brown to discuss the Endangered Species Act’s achievements and failures in protecting and recovering species. For decades the Endangered Species Act has done a good job of preventing listed species from going extinct; however, the ESA has failed to fully recover many of those species. Changes to the law to help align private landowners incentives with these recovery goals may be the answer.
