From the Paper:

" In December of 1973, the Endangered Species Act (ESA) was passed. The Act claims to provide a means to conserve endangered and threatened species and to provide a program for the conservation of such endangered species and threatened species. Appropriate steps toward these goals were provided for in the act as well (Ray 82). Although the act has generated little controversy throughout most of its history, the law is now at the center of one (Bean 22). A host of business, development, resource extraction, and ideological interests have targeted the law for radical change or extinction. Recently, the federal government implemented the National Biological Survey, a project that created still more controversy about the act among those who believe it would expand the reach of the Endangered Species Act even further (Interior 1475)."
