Can animals be on the endangered species list in one area but not on it in another area?

    When a species is protected under the US Fish and Wildlife Service’s Endangered Species Act, it is federally protected throughout the United States. There are different levels of protection and some species can be listed as “endangered” and others as “threatened.” The level by which they are listed depends on the number of species as well as habitat availability.

    It is true that a species can be state protected, in which case you may have one species that is protected in one state and not another. There are also the exceptions of the Migratory Bird Species Act and the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act, both of which protect migratory birds nationwide; although, they may not necessarily be “endangered.”
