The Endangered Species Act of 1973 is a way the EPA helps with preservation of species. The act protects plants and animals that are listed by the federal government as “endangered” or “threatened.” The Endangered Species Act makes it unlawful for anyone to “take” a listed animal, and this includes significantly modifying its habitat. This applies to private parties and private land; a landowner is not allowed to harm an endangered animal or its habitat on his property.
The EPA helps with the preservation of species by requiring evaluations of new projects to ensure they don’t adversely impact species on the threatened or endangered list. They also make laws to prevent animals from being harmed – for instance, by limiting or ban certain pesticide use to protect salmon in the Pacific Northwest.
