  • Farallones Marine Sanctuary Association :: Take Action :: Richard Pombo is at it Again
    study by conservation biologists reported in the June issue of the scientific journal Natural History indicates that the longer a jeopardized species has been protected under the Endangered Species Act the more likely it is to have increased its numbers In addition species with protected critical habitat are more likely to be showing improvements than those without designated critical habitat The success of the Endangered Species Act is undeniable Natural History reported that just 22 of the 1 370 species listed since 1964 have gone extinct That s a 98 4 success rate Without the Endangered Species Act 227 species would likely have been lost forever the biologists found Because of the Endangered Species Act only nine out of the 1800 animals protected by the Act have been declared extinct Rep Pombo s legislation would put an end to that astonishing record of success For more than 30 years the Endangered Species Act has worked to save the rarest members of America s wildlife heritage including helping to rescue the gray whale from extinction Yet in spite of polls that show that nearly 90 percent of Americans support the act rewriting the Endangered Species Act is a top priority for the Resources Committee according to Chairman Pombo Last year Rep Pombo failed in his attempt to pass legislation that would have virtually eliminated protections for endangered species habitat as well as politicized and weakened the science that underlies these protections This year it looks as if he may be going for an even bigger prize reducing the effectiveness of the law in nearly all of its aspects including habitat protections and science potentially erasing the law itself and eradicating within a decade all existing protections for threatened and endangered species Twenty five endangered and threatened species live within the borders
