The Trump administration has announced that the decades old Endangered Species Act, which is credited with saving the American Bald Eagle from extinction would be reworked. The Endangered Species Act, a Federal law sighed in 1973, seeks to prevent plants and animals from becoming extinct. The law would be amended to make it is easier to remove species from the protected list. The changes also include provisions that speed up the approval process that federal agencies are required to complete before making changes that could harm endangered species, and would weaken protections for critical habitat. The current law protects more than 1,600 plant and animal species. The effort underscores ways the current Trump administration is moving to change bedrock environmental laws in a manner long sought by industrial and development interests.
