This paper treats the issue of endangered wildlife and examines the status of the American Alligator, the Bald Eagle, and the Indiana Bat, three species named on the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission's (AGFC) list of "Species of Special Concern." The paper relates that both Arkansas' state government and that of the United States have attempted to establish policies that will ensure the protection of American wildlife. The paper attempts to prove that while a few of these policies have provided some safety for endangered wildlife, most have proven unsuccessful and in desperate need of serious change.

From the Paper:

"The American Alligator is perhaps the most impressive success story of the attempts of both the federal government and the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission to protect an endangered species. The alligators, which are indigenous to the marshy areas of southern states like Florida and Louisiana, weren't threatened until alligator skin became fashionable, and thus, valuable, in the 1920's. Over a relatively short period of time, the southern marshes were full of 'hide-hunters,' who "decimated the species" (www.agfc.state.ar.us, 11-01-04). Finally, in 1967, alligators were declared an endangered species and granted protection.
