Endangered Species Act
The Endangered Species Act of 1973 requires the NPS to identify and promote the conservation of all Federally listed endangered, threatened, or candidate species within park or preserve boundaries. While not required by legislation, it is the policy of the NPS to identify state locally-listed species of concern and support the preservation and restoration of those species and their habitats.
